Star employees will take a big hit

Dateline: Tue 21 Jun 2011

Layoffs are underway at the Indianapolis Star today.

The word is that this will be big, maybe the largest number of layoffs to date.

Blog readers join me, I know, in a show of empathy for those affected.

But never forget: there is life after the Star.

I'm also told that Lesley Stedman Weidenbener at the Courier-Journal was laid off. Probably means that Gannett paper will no longer have a Statehouse presence.

Believe me, you are all better off. Life is so much better after the Star.
