Don't Like What's Going On? Well, Sue!

Somebody in the good ole' US of A was bound to sue a newspaper about the slicing and dicing going on. Lo and behold a North Carolina lawyer (and former reporter. Yippee!)is suing The News & Observer
in Raleigh, N.C., over staff and newsprint cuts.

Editor and Publisher reported the lawyer is suing because he renewed his subscription and soon after the newspaper did the slice and dice dance. Naturally, the paper is "not worth what hesigned up for and therefore the cuts breached the paper's contract with
him...." The lawyer alleges this is fraud. You dirty rats!!

Good luck, buddy. I'll be watching if anything comes of this. There's a long line of people who are being defrauded by the newspaper industry at this moment.

I so envy you for getting out while the getting was good, there are so many people looking for life jackets and can't seem to find them. The job market sucks and the economy doesn't help either. City beautiful has it's own Enron.

Yes, I realize now that I picked a a good time to leave tho I didn't know it at the time. The economy was still humming, the housing market hadn't tanked and job opportunities had not dried up. It will be much harder for the current batch of people who will be left jobless. But, hey, the optimism in me says nothing's impossible...
