Star-Telegram Gets Into the Buyout Business

A Cowtowning FrontBurnervian points us to the news that the Star-T doesn’t want the DMN to have the buyout fun all to itself. So it, too, is offering a “voluntary separation program” to most of its full-time employees. [crawling under desk, holding onto hat]

    Welcome to the slaughter house
    in Fort Worth “cowtown”.
    Can I get a rim shot?

    Regardless of how you feel about “newspeople” (although the correct term is journalist, unless you’re still calling your doctor “medicine man”), these are people losing their jobs.

    And in this economy, nobody is immune to that. The joy you display is pretty unseemly and immature.

  3. Not An Old Person says:

    I don’t think you
    deserve that kind of respect.

    So that is why I call you “newspeople”

    Plus, you’ve got to admit that was a
    great post I posted above.

    You “newspeople” are so boring, smug, and like a nagging woman.

    You can’t be married.

  4. Bethany says:

    Again – what is it that you do?

  5. Not an Intelligent Person says:

    That’s pretty cogent analysis, right there.
    And your line breaks are genius.

  6. Renee says:

    @Not An Old Person: Well, no, we don’t have to admit that was a great post. In fact, it was pretty pointless and silly, as well as a total failure in its attempt to be both amusing and mean at the same time.

  7. Not An Old Person says:

    Ah, poor little Renee can’t laugh.

    As the Joker says, “Why So Serious?”

  8. Renee says:

    I only laugh when something’s funny.

  9. Not An Old Person says:

    So that means never.

    You probably have hairy armpits
    and live with a bunch of cats.
    Like most women journalist…Ha,ha,ha!

  10. Bethany says:

    What is your obsession with hirsute women?

  11. Someone Else says:

    Dear Mr. Not An Old Person Who Can’t Even Spell Renee When It’s Written Right There For All to See:

    You’re not funny, but you are a sociopath. Really, how tiresome for those who know you.

  12. publicnewsense says:

    These newspaper layoffs/buyouts are crippling democracy by diminishing the light that shines on behalf of freedom. Without that light, the disgusting roaches, such as Not An Old Person, can do what they want without fearing exposure.
    Though, probably, Not An Old Person relishes exposure, particularly as he stands near schoolyards.

  13. Hellraiser says:

    publicnewsense – Please don’t preach to us, the readers of newspapers, about shining the light of freedom for the rest of us misguided readers. No one wants to hear your holier-than- thou writer attitude. Most of your kind don’t report anymore. You profess the news or what you want the world to be. Do you remember about giving us Who, What, When, and Where. I guess you don’t with that ego you have.

    Hey, I’m doing all I can for you. I’m praying you never become an old person.
