The Dallas Morning News laid off more than 50 people in the newsroom today. On top of that, even more were laid off in the business side of the paper. We lost about 150 people.
Thanks to everyone who sent notes to see if I survived. I did, but it's still been my least favorite workday ever. (And I used to work at a restaurant called the Catfish Hole.)
I've never been in such a somber work environment. It's a sad, sad day at the DMN.
