Take off your jeans*, **

Denim and the Daily News don't mix, according to Publisher Doug Hanes. He sent out a memo warning employees against wearing jeans and tennis shoes. LA Observed got a copy.

(I remember back when I started at the Star-News in 2002 that then-Executive Editor Tal Campbell issued a similar edict. Eventually, people would ignore it and he'd have to issue the edict again.)

In other news, LAO reports that Daily News editorial page editor Chris Weinkopf is leaving.

*The denim revolt begins.

**The denim revolt succeeds.

So I guess Sam Zell won't be working in Woodland Hills anytime soon...

You would think the suits at the Daily News would be focusing on surviving, growing revenue and keeping talented people. Silly me.

Sure Mr. Hanes! Let me spend some more of the measly salary you pay on Armani outfits!

If the reported denim rebellion is true, then Mr. Hanes would do well to slip home during lunch and return to work in jeans. That would show humor and good will. Or, the staff could reject the gesture and never wear jeans again. Either way ...

Show humor and good will? Please share your medication with the rest of us. Mr Hanes and Mr Moss have about as much humor as---please fill in your own punch line, I am still laughing.

I agree with No. 3. If newspaper publishers to give up jeans, paper-covered desks and all the other perks of our profession, they can raise our pay to the level of every other corporate drone.

Well dressed on Friday adds a fifth day of the week to look good while interviewing for a new job. It's not about management style dictates - it's about efficiency.

Why don't we have thong Tuesday's anymore?

Just another way for management to drive crazy and drive you out and freeze the position.

Is there a dress code in the contract? nope!

Don't forget cut-off football jersey Thursday.

you would think it doesn't take a genius to figure out that sending out a dress code while the business is falling faster than a stone, yet, the team at lang gets it wrong again and again.

Hey, who is counting the pencils and making sure the erasers aren't being used above the budget they set for use?

Unreal and most stupid!!!!!

I saw an employee earlier this week who wore dark brown socks with a blue suit. Maybe he should be sent home to change.

And aside to the first posting here, if the leaders in Woodland Hills don't start coming up with meaningful growth plans, no one will be working in Woodland Hills.
