What a Break

Hello, Again: Wow, it's been a while. Sorry. Some very busy days sandwiched around an awesome family vacation to my wife's home state of Florida. We took our almost 11-month-old son Hayden to Anna Maria Island, south of Tampa. We had him baptized on the same beach where we got engaged. Pretty cool. Actually, the weather had been hot. But, yes, it was VERY cool.

Back to the News: My sympathies to the 13 employees of the Des Moines Register and their families who found out today they are part of the 700 layoffs nationwide by their parent company, Gannett. Some very talented people who now have to figure out, "what's next"?

So, let's catch up...

It's hard to believe that the DM Register could do that to such loyal employees especially when the CEO has a 9 million dollar salary.

i didnt know the ceo made that much! time to trim the ceo's salary to keep the actual talent, me thinks, or get rid of just one ceo and keep the 13 writers!
