Thin and Getting Thinner

I was about half finished shoveling out today when the guy who delivers the Courier News pulled up and rolled down his window.

"Just toss it", I said.

No dice.  "Too light, I can't throw it".

True story.

Ironic then that Gannett, owner of the Courier News and several other New Jersey papers, officially announced today that they were laying off staff at their three central NJ newspapers - the CN, the Home News Tribune, and the Daily Record.  Only 53 of the 99 newsroom positions will remain after February 4, 2011.

Maybe the delivery guy would be better off just folding the slim offering into a paper airplane next time.
