Continue: Lokeman Circ Perk:
In the Z-man tradition of two names, I dub the little lady scribbler, Loko O-NO.

In just a brief research, it seems that Loko’s syndication numbers would be dismal without the circ numbers of the KC Red Star. I am wondering if anyone knows if the fee for a column has anything to do with stated ‘current’ syndication numbers?

Propping up a chummy columnist to charge your own paper a higher fee, or even keeping an inferior journalist salaried, which lines the family pocketbook, would be something to think about. Seems like a tangled web, this.

Loko O-NO, heh.

Not everything Rhonda writes is off the wall. This column title seems plausible enough.

Congratulations McClatchy Watch. Derek Donovan, the KC Star Reader's Rep reads McClatchy Watch regularly as evidenced by his latest entry announcing their new Comments Module! He quotes a comment here as an example for his need to have a thick skin. The Comment showcased:

"After that, they can get rid of their useless Apologist/Excuse Maker/Todie and part times sales girl Derek Donovan."

Anonymous 5:00 -- thanks for the info. I'm glad Dereck Donovan is reading McClatchy Watch. He's not alone -- hundreds of McClatchy employees check in here every day.

"NM Dept. Of Health Recommends Breastfeeding After Infant Dies Of Rare Illness"

Maybe the folks trying to keep MNI alive know how to nurse a dead baby, but most of us would have no idea.

from Kentucky.com:
The (Louisville, KY) Courier-Journal says 51 employees have been laid off as part of cutbacks being made by Gannett Co. Inc. A posting on the newspaper's Web site Wednesday says 17 of the employees volunteered for a severance package. Citing a letter from newspaper President and Publisher Arnold Garson, the posting said 18 other positions won't be filled. Executive Editor Bennie L. Ivory declined to say Wednesday how many of the cuts involved the newsroom's staff. The cuts are 6.5 percent of the newspaper's work force and come on the heels of 15 layoffs that were announced in August.

Glad to hear that "THE SLIME BALL"
Derek Donovan reads McClatchy Watch. I thought he was so damn dumb he couldn't read.

Please Donovan take that Stupid picture of yourself out of the newspaper. Makes my cat throw up every morning.

Truth is there is a lot more to read here than in your crappy newspaper.

Cat has a phobia about effeminate "Reader Reps", does it? Me too.

Why don't you post Donovan's picture here so everybody can see what a loser really looks like.

That way he can look at himself as he reads what people think of him.
