Kick me in the head, seriously. I knew nothing, nothing. My poor, 33-year-old boss had to tell me. I feel really bad for her. This is not what she signed on for. I would have expected [Post editor] Greg Moore to have called me. He didn’t, and I’m disappointed.
Why does she believe she was let go? “I’m extraneous. If you look at newspapers that still have a business columnist, well, they can be axed.” Both columnists were brought over from the Rocky Mountain News when that paper folded in 2009.
I can’t say how much this sucks! Sad beyond what I can express.
