"Goodbye readers" writes one of the 100 fired from the Washington post

100 reporters got the pink slip from the Washington Post today. So how do they bid their adieus? Linton Weeks coded his farewell in his last review published today. Read the upper case letter that starts each paragraph - yes, it spells out "Goodbye readers". Now that's a writers way of making an grand exit. One reader replied "and a goodbye to you Linton"

So deliciously nerdy!

Not actually pink-slipped — according to this, it was a voluntary buyout.

Make of that what you will. A lot of the big names took it.

Thanks AlphaSquirrel, I didn't know that part of the story. Figured the old "let go" meant "fired".
