Instead of a Christmas gift ...

The Enquirer is doing its employees a big, big favor: It's letting them take time off! Without pay! This makes up for the Enquirer cancelling its annual employee Christmas gift. What a generous company!

You cannot reach a high level in Enquirer management without being an able wordsmith, apparently.

By the way, we've taken advantage of this Cincinnati Enquirer benefit for a while now. We do not show up to work at the Enquirer and we do not get paid by them. Nice to see they have extended, though on a limited basis, this benefit to the rest of their staff.

We suspect, after a brief trial period, this benefit may be made mandatory and permanent for a number of Gannett's employees.

I just want you to know that I found your comment very amusing.

And as reporters become scarcer and scarcer at this Gannett field op, the career opportunities just keep exploding for data entry clerks. You know, the poor schmucks who are chained to their tubes typing in the endless press releases and calendar items that meet the Enquirer's highest definition of information today. Once the public is adequately trained to perform this function itself, the Enquirer newsroom will be eliminated entirely. Won't that be great when there won't be any reporters to kick around with all their biases and failings. City Council will simply have a press release typed up after its votes and post it on the Enquirer's Get Published page online. Now that's taking out the middleman!

How many unpaid days of "vacation" will the publisher be taking off?

She'd certainly save a few dollars. And, it certainly seems more than fair as she's been in charge long enough to finally be held responsible as the economy excuse only goes far.
