    The Star has delayed layoffs while it tries to figure out what to do with its crazy editor. You can’t lay people off with Fannin at the helm. Too many potential lawsuits. Hearne, why can’t you focus for more than a couple of days at a time? Fannin hasn’t been at work in two days. Does Fannin have dirt on Zieman that is preventing Zieman from pulling the trigger? Why haven’t you gotten to the bottom of Whitlock’s CaddyShack story?

    Whilock “fingered” as in pointed to Holly. It was Mike Fannin who was doing the actual “digital penetration”

    I was thinkin’ Holly was more like a sportsbabe69. Sorry, too easy.

    And now back to Fannin’ the Flames on sports radio 610 with your hosts Mike and Holly.

    Let’s hope not. I’ve never worked in the Print J business, but definitely have a soft spot in my heart for those folks. Theirs is a noble, wonderful calling (even given the partisan slant that so many therein often exhibit), and I wish things wouldn’t just keeping getting worse for people in that industry every single day. Despite the fact that print publications are largely archaic and a thing of the past, they still have an audience through the internet and websites. I think they have failed to maximize that potential revenue stream as a replacement source of income for declining subscriptions. I don’t even purport to be knowledgeable about their business model, but there’s something wrong there from a business perspective. These folks do have an audience, and they’ve largely failed to find it.
