#1 Layoffs make sense, given how much redundancy there is at Newsweak. After all, most of their writing and editing is done by the Obama press secretary's office anyway - they just rephrase the talking points and reprint them.

#2 True OS and interns can easily do that edit.

#5 ... somehow I don't think the HR dept at the Peoples Workers Daily will be impressed. Maybe the Pennysaver.

#7 Just before Christmas, too. Typical of the cold, bourgeois matriarchial corporate power structure!

#8 Lifeboats? More like rocks; you can tie them together but they still won't float.
