    Reporters had the gall to ask for a clean bowl of rice.

    What a gutless coward he is. He burns the Tribune to the ground with someone else's money, then has the gall to blame the people producing the content that actually make it worth something? What the hell did he provide to the Tribune, other than a willingness to stand on the goddamn accelerator as the whole company when through a guardrail and over a cliff?

    DD, agree with it all, but at this point, he's clearly such a lunatic that it's almost not even worth worrying about anymore. It's like saying Jeffrey Dahmer is sick or something. Zell took on something he didn't understand, even the tiniest little bit, and thousands of people paid.

    Loved this part:

    Damn you tiny people and your need for breathing room! If we stack eight to a cubicle you can be even more productive!

    Greedy? I think he's right. When I took a pay cut and my two furloughs, all I thought about was money. :p

    It's always the greedy workers trying to make a living wage that are keeping the billionaires from being trillionaires.

    After pay was docked to 8 cents a day with 20 furlough days a year.

    Our world is divided into two kinds of people: content providers and discontent providers.

    Not to mention the hiring of executives gaining special repulsiveness ratings . . .
