Cutting deep

Jeff Jacobs writes about his angst over three colleagues at the Hartford Courant taking buyouts in this column in Saturday's paper. "All week I have been sick to my stomach, wondering why we lost three teammates to the harsh economic blade of 21st-century newspaper accounting," he writes. He also references a column by David Whitley in the Orlando Sentinel that notes that while Tribune Co. is cutting staff at many of its newspapers through buyouts and layoffs, it's also considering adding Rafael Furcal to the company-owned Cubs for $50 million.
