Letters to the Editor
Shrinking the Times

 

Re “Times to lay off 300, consolidate sections,” Business, Jan. 31

Sam Zell is at it again.

Not only did he raise The Times' daily rate, and not only has he been laying off the high-quality reporters and other workers who, at one time, made The Times one of the nation's most respected newspapers -- now he is consolidating the California section into the main section and laying off an additional 300 workers.

This means Zell will be contributing to our soaring unemployment rate, while the public will be getting a reduction in local, national and world news and, thus, paying more for less.

What a guy! If ever there were a good use for eminent domain, taking over The Times for the benefit of the public at large would be it.

Larry Gross
