    With regard to this paragraph:

    The Employment Projections Summary examines the expected job loss or gain for each industry between 2008, the last year for which data is available, and 2018. Newspapers rank seventh among the top 10 industries slated for job losses.

    I wonder what the top-losing industry on this list is.

    You guys look at the glass and say it will be 25 percent empty and I say it will be 75 percent full (but I still probably won't get hired at the Plain Dealer).

    Are these writing jobs? I would think a lot of them would be prepress and pressroom as many papers are going online only.

    It's not like we're in the medical field, but this is speculative bullshit.

    I think most newspapers are learning to adapt, and I see a future in this biz just a difference in how the news is delivered.

    The most encouraging part of this thread is that this is a federal study, and I wouldn't trust the government to pick up my trash correctly.

    How much has it gone down in the last 18 months, percentage-wise?

    I'm guessing this will be the final 25 percent, since the first 75 percent has been flushed away.
