So very sorry to read this. He was a New Oreleans original and will be missed.

Re: “NOLA Media Group meets with the New Orleans tech community

“I know that the layoff at The Times-Picayune SEEMS significant,” O’Byrne added. Hello? Many of these people are longtime colleagues of James'. Is anyone in leadership of the organization ever going to voice TRUE sympathy and remorse for the lives being upended by this move?

Re: “Times-Picayune: Mathews speaks!, new jobs posted ... and a jazz funeral for the print edition

If you need New Orleanians to know what's REALLY going on with The Times-Picayune, tell Kevin Allman.

Re: “Save the Picayune petition

I agree that it's not the silver bullet, but simply another way for the community to show their support for the newspaper.

BTW, we're up to 360 signatures and counting as of 5:30 PM CDT.

Re: “More with less

As I posted earlier on NOLA.com, I'm not very proud today that this is the kind of stuff for which I left the Picayune and went back to grad school to specialize in writing - and which I made a second career out of. "Reallocate" and "accelerate," (along with "synergistic," "restructure," "optimize" etc.) are all the kinds of words any self-respecting editor would have shot me for using in a Times-Picayune story. But that was 18 years ago; I guess more has changed than simply the growth of the Internet.
