Landsberg at Bottomline Communications came up with a couple of names of Kansas City Star reporters who got the ax:
Bottom Line Communications has learned that veteran sports writer Howard Richman and former sports reporter Steve Rock have been let go during the recent round of layoffs at the Kansas City Star.Apparently, these two were pretty good even though I can't particularly remember anything they ever wrote . . . Not to be all Warren Buffett about something as precious and important as journalism (ugh) but it's probably better to build a brand then to contribute to producing a commodity in a mostly nameless fashion. Just a thought . . . Maybe something for newsies without much name recognition to mull over while picking up unemployment checks . . . I'm available for additional counseling if you bring the hot wings and don't mind talking while I play X-box.
