Newspaper G&D ... carnage continues

From the Pegasus news blog up in the Metroplex, word of layoffs at the Fort Worth Startlegram, a good paper:
FORT WORTH — If you hear screaming from the West, it's probably because a round of surprise layoffs is currently underway at the Fort Worth Star Telegram; 15 employees were called into Human Resources on Thursday morning to be let go.

Read it all here. The Startlegram is owned by McClatchy, a California-based outfit. During the Depression, my mother read proof for Miz McClatchy at the Fresno Bee. The day I was born, Honey Corsier, an old Linotype operator at the Bee, died. Maybe I got to be Honey in his next incarnation.
