DFO: Popkey’s Financial Future Better

DFO (RE: 007: Popkey's now a flack): There may be another angle at play here. Popkey is 55 years old -- an age in which he's facing an uncertain future as far as newpapering goes. I know several individuals in the 45-55 range who are wondering if it's time to bail for another career because they don't know how long their newspaper will hold out. I'd guess Popkey's salary increased significantly when he signed on the dotted line with Labrador. Also, I'd guess that his benefits and retirement packages improved significantly. This could be a situation where a good reporter saw the writing on the wall and jumped for a signicantly better financial situation.

Question: Is this about money, bottom line?
