MamaJD: Appreciate Editor Smith’s Candor

Thank you for your candor, Mr. Smith. I can appreciate your position in these matters and I recognize that this situation is difficult for everyone involved, including those currently employed. When you work with people, their humanity becomes known (such as divorce, loss of a paycheck, death, etc) and this can add even more stress to an already stressful situation. I also understand that we do not know the full details in every situation, but that has never prevented us frequent bloggers from stating our opinions. That being said, it is always difficult when your are in a position that has an affect on not just those you employ but their families that depend on that job. I think many of us pay attention because we, as readers, care about “our” newspaper and that is a good thing. Good luck in the upcoming weeks/MamaJD.
