TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! SPRINT CAMPUS SOLD!!! OVERLAND PARK TELCOM JOB CUT MASSACRE COMING SOON!!!
Local outlets are reporting this inevitability as if it's "news" when the update was actually nothing more than just an e-mail that has been spammed far and wide.
The Friday job fear is actually a bit of foreshadowing . . .
THE SPRINT CAMPUS SOLD BRINGS TELCOM WORKERS ONE STEP CLOSER TO MASSIVE JOHNSON COUNTY JOB CUTS!!!
When it happens, I'm sure that it might also seem like "news" despite the fact our blog community has been talking about this heartbreak in the making for quiet some time.
Meanwhile, we can only be assured that local media will continue to carry press releases and happy talk both before and after these middle-class workers get the ax and learn all about income inequality in the first person.

KCUR: Sprint employees will be concentrated in the southern end of the property, where Sprint CEO Michel Combes' email said the company will create "a new heart of the campus" centered on the 6200 Sprint Parkway building. His email stressed that the people in the company make up Sprint, not its buildings.
Fox4: Statement from Sprint, "Even though Sprint will no longer own the buildings there will be no change to the campus operations or processes."
