Having been there (and I'd rather not go further than that online) I sympathize. I'll keep you all in my thoughts and will definitely send up a flare if I see anything job-wise.


sorry to hear that lance. best wishes to all y'all.


Been there, done that, didn't even get a T-shirt. My best to the blonde and the rest of the family.


I'm sorry, Lance. Best wishes to you and your wife. Good luck.


I'm so sorry. No pun intended, hedge funds are the bane of our financial system.

Makes me so sick to hear this. So sorry Lance.

Ian Toll

I wish I could think of something better to say than "Damn, that sucks." My sympathies to you both.


It's an outrage, and if it wouldn't impact other innocent victims, I would wish the worst to the new owners. But, of course, that type of person never really risks anything of his own, only other people's.


Mrs. Mannion is a combination editor-rabbi-football coach and all-around great person. She deserved better than she got from the GateHouse bastards, and she will land on her feet, which will be the best revenge.


Very sorry to hear that, Lance. She sounds like an extremely worthy candidate-- fingers crossed that she'll be snapped up by a more appreciative company.


Sorry to hear it. (I've got a colleague who was laid off several years back from a great journalism job at a then-great paper. It's brutal.) Best wishes.
