LA Observed: Another bad day at 1st and Spring

From the LA Times photo archive @ UCLA Library.
More cuts at the Los Angeles Times were announced today, a tragedy on so many levels, most immediately, of course, for those let go, and in the long term, for democracy.

Here's a snippet from the note sent out by editor Russ Stanton, via LA Observed:
The growing economic downturn is forcing us to undergo another round of job reductions and cost cuts. I deeply regret to report that today, 75 of our friends, colleagues and capable staff members in Editorial will be told that they are losing their jobs. This is about 10% of our total staff and these cuts are comparable in scale to those made on the business side of The Times last week.
