So, I am not sure what this means. But there is a postscript to the story about the absolutely glowing article about Pittsburgh last week in the Cleveland Plain Dealer. If I understand this news article today, the Cleveland Plain Dealer is experiencing the same media biz miasma of all its print brethren and today laid off 27 editorial staff. Among them it lists Scott Stephens who was the journalist who wrote the Pittsburgh story. It actually lists "Chris and Scott Stephens". So husband and wife laid off together? Ouch. Reminds us that there is the news of the pending buyouts down the at the PG. I have not heard the official word if there is any, but what I hear is that enough folks took the voluntary buyout so that there will not be other layoffs for the time being. Anyone?
