On his site "RI Future," Bob Plain reports that 26 employees of the PROVIDENCE JOURNAL have been cut loose. Plain hammers that they have lost the way to support themselves. He's on the money since not only is the newspaper industry in bad shape, so is Rhode Island. It's not the state anyone wants to be without a job or a skill that is in demand.
This blog joins with Plain in expressing sympathy to these men and women who might have to start over, and maybe in another state.
