In limbo on Booth news

Still waiting for some final numbers on who stayed and who left at the Journal. I understand there is a great deal of consternation among copy editors who must make the difficult choice of taking the buyout or hoping for a chance at a smaller pool of jobs in Grand Rapids.

There is also word that the annual profit and subscription numbers are even worse than anticipated which does not bode well for the future.

No word yet either on how many part-timers will be invited to stay or shown the door.
