I was too busy for lunch today, and I forgot to bring a Slim-Fast bar to work, so I was starving by the time I got home. I sat down to check my e-mail and promptly lost my appetite upon reading this bit of news.

The layoffs included one of my former reporters who had been rehired after last spring’s bloodletting. Mama Bear is not a happy camper this evening.

  1. That’s a bad deal!!! I know because I got fired on New Years Eve. And I also love how the have turned off the reader comment section of the story on the Tulsa World site.

  2. I’ve never cared for the Tulsa World myself. It’s too liberal for me. But I hate seeing anyone get laid off. I’ve been laid off too many times myself.

  3. Wouldn’t you think that a company that makes its living on the first amendment would have second thoughts about censoring comments on a news story? Hmmm. . .

  4. You’d think that, but we’re talking about a man who gets up every morning in his multimillion-dollar mansion, puts on his Armani suit, and drives his Ferrari to the office, where he expects his readers to believe that he can’t afford to pay the help after he canceled raises for this year with the promise that nobody would be laid off. The concept of irony has, apparently, escaped him.
