Lee Enterprises has eliminated 234 people at the Post-Dispatch since 2008, and 235 at the Suburban Journals in that same span of time. That's 469 people who lost their jobs, or roughly one person per $2,452 of bonus cash given to Lee Enterprises' CEO Mary Junck this year alone.
To those who lost their jobs, our condolences. I'll eschew the St. Louis video this week and go with one of my favorite songs. Pharoah Sanders always clears out my head, heart and pineal gland, allowing me to start over clean. It's the most I can offer you at this point.
