FYI. Layoffs are not required to be reported unless there are more than 500 within a 90 day period at any one site. Hence you see quarterly layoffs until the company reaches their "number." They do NOT want these reported in the press. See here for more details for those inclined: http://www.doleta.gov/programs/factsht/warn.htm

The cuts were indeed deep this time around. I count myself fortunate to still be employed. I really hope revenue picks up for DN soon.
