Thinning paper

The anonymous IE Report has put up a memorial site for editorial employees who took the buyout at the Press-Enterprise.

The list includes my good friend and honorary big sis Mary Schubert Bender, a long-time reporter in Southern California and a former colleague of mine at the Pasadena Star-News. Mary, who'd also worked at the Los Angeles Daily News, was one of the first to get laid-off as MediaNews began the slow bleed of its SoCal properties a few years back. Fortunately, she ended up in a more stable place - at least it was at the time.
