When your newspaper lays you off, it's like losing a limb. Not to mention, the workload on the remaining reporters doubles and triples. And how will Memphis have a daily newspaper with such a skeletal staff? Sickened by this news, but I salute the Flyer for staying on top of this. My heart goes out to my colleagues at 495 Union. We were a family, and families stick together. And incidentally, commenter "Long Duck Dong," how many daily papers did you get out with your juvenile fake name?
