news-press, schmooze-press...

Well, it happened. It's a good thing I just posted about getting back to basics, because that's what I'll be doing more of in the next few months.

Yes, folks. It's true. Today I lost my job. You can read about here, by my good friends at the Indy.

I'm much too tired to post about it at this point, but basically the head of HR of the News-Press showed up today and told all three of us that the Valley Voice was being killed as a publication and told us to pack our stuff immediately and had security guards escort us out. Classy. Anyway, I'm feeling pretty upbeat about it, even though I'm bummed not to be covering the city anymore... It still feels a little bit surreal.

Anyhoo, more tomorrow, now that I'll have LOTS of time to be blogging... :)

Grace and Peace
