I’m talking about the changes to the News that we told you about earlier. And, apparently, the News employees themselves. Today there will be two employee meetings to unveil the focus-grouped innovations to the paper (new Metro zones, plus a tabloid-size daily lifestyle/entertainment thingy). Everyone at the paper was asked to wear a t-shirt today that was given to them by management. They’re called “Live Better Here” t-shirts, to match their new slogan, I presume. A DMNer warns us:
The t-shirts are done in extremely loud colors, like fuschia, aquamarine, and lime green. As a public service announcement to all the conservative Republicans working downtown, if you’re driving past the corner of Young and Houston streets around 10 this morning, it is NOT a Gay Pride parade. It’s just a human rainbow of Morning News employees marching to the Hyatt [where the meetings will take place].
