Front door to the old Fresno Bee building The Fresno Bee continues to do everything it can to stave off more inevitable layoffs. I don’t blame them, but I sure am getting tired of the bad news:

We are offering voluntary buyout packages under a Voluntary Separation Program to employees as another step to reduce expenses as we change our business practices to adapt to the economic challenges and transition to an integrated multi-media company.

I’m not going to post a lot of commentary on this, but if we are “changing our business practices”, then I might have to build some kind of high-precision tool to measure the imperceptible change.
