Comment of the Day

Readers disagree about whether Mike Littwin layoff at Denver Post a pro or a con

Our post yesterday about Penny Parker and Mike Littwin being laid off by the Denver Post was met with an explosion of commentary, much of it directed at Littwin, whose work is loved and hated with equal passion.

Here are two responses that capture the contrast.

Too bad to see Parker go. She actually covered the business community. I'm very glad to see Littwin go. Now he can drop the facade and go to work directly for the Democratic National Committee. He's a tool.

Approximately 10 minutes after I heard about Mike Littwin being laid off by the Post, I called and cancelled my subscription.
