Boned Again By the Times!

The L.A. Times have again stooped to another low in their vain attempt to save a buck! I was informed last night that The L.A. Times will not be renewing their contract with Ryder Logistics. That means the drivers will again be victims of the Times belt tightening.

Brandt Bros. and Fox will never compare to these men and women that have proven for decades that they are the best at what they do, and that is deliver the L.A. Times. Too bad they are again being under appreciated for their irreplaceable contribution to this company.

I'm a bit worried that these nice folks at Times Mirror Square will cut San Diego from the Times' circulation area.

Again, Ronnie hits the emotional extreme in describing the drivers' contributions as "irreplaceable."

It sounds harsh, but if you face reality, hauling newspapers (and making pasters) is a very replaceable contribution. It does not take years of schooling or job training to do either.

Fact is, most drivers were very fine people that did a good job. As in any workforce, a few were a pain in the ass and not real productive.

The lesson here is keep growing. The world changes and each of us choose to keep pace or stagnate. Be sure your children make the most of every educational opportunity.
