Something to read

Despite whatever the execs tell you, newspapers are still profitable in this country. The corporations that claim to be losing money aren't really losing money; they are running smaller profit margins than they did 10 years ago. I won't go into the why of that, as I have done so previously in this space and rehashing it just makes my blood boil. 
Anyway, hit the link above to read about how some newsroom staffers at the LA Times have finally decided enough is enough. Cutting jobs and coverage is bad enough, but doing so after using the employees' money to buy the damn paper is even worse. 
Off to the hospital to hold Josie's hand during Josh's surgery.
