Regarding prospects for soon-to-be-jobless newspaper employees, a reader suggests this good idea for a discussion topic:
If you took a buyout or got laid off from a paper in the last year, what do you do now -- and what advice do you have for the rest of us in surviving this, and reinventing ourselves? What professions have welcomed your experience and skills? I'm especially interested in hearing from former newsroom employees.
