more falling apart

from the nytimes:

"Time Inc. laid off nearly 300 people today at its top magazines, including its most profitable title, People, which is shutting down its bureaus in Washington, Miami, Chicago and Austin, Texas.
People is laying off 44 editorial employees, though it is also creating 7 new jobs, for a net loss of 37.
Time, the company’s flagship magazine, is also cutting about 50 people, and is shutting down bureaus in Los Angeles, Chicago and Atlanta. Seven positions in its Washington bureau and three in Paris are being eliminated."

my one question, though, is why People had an austin bureau. is there that much celebrity stuff going on down there? i guess there's the whole music scene, but honestly who cares about that. if mariah carey isn't there, it really doesn't matter at all.

ditto about paris. americans don't care about the french. freedom haters!
