Dueling dirges

One of my sisters and I both work in the newspaper industry, and these days it seems like we are playing Dueling Banjos. Only instead of the scaly song that is Dueling Banjos, lately our tune is like the death knell of the industry.

I find out that I am being furloughed for a week, she finds out about something crappy. People get laid off at her job; my publisher quits.

I am pretty certain newspapers will be around in the future, but this still kind of sucks.
