I'm sick after reading this.
I just don't know what's going to be left of journalism in Connecticut unless something changes quickly.
For more, here's The Laurel's coverage and here's Denis Horgan's The Mardi Gras Massacre.
And here is The Associated Press story on it.
Leonard Honeyman's Len's Lens has a more personal reaction.
Oh, and here is the Courant's official version.
On a personal note, I worked with a couple of these folks before they moved on to the Courant -- Matt Eagan and Loretta Waldman -- and I feel for them. Matt, in particular, has become a terrific, all-round journalist. I just can't believe they let him go.
