@1, so let me get this straight. A "white, largely male, staff of editors" = "people who (do not) share our values." So someone who was born different from you inherently does not share your values? Frankly, I'd rather not share those values.
Anyway, I wanted to comment here just to say that this round of Seattle Times layoffs hit one of the three Times writers whose work I look forward to the most, sportswriter Matt Pentz. (The other two would be transportation reporter Mike Lindblom and business columnist Jon Talton.)
And then there's Lindsey Wasson, who, through a combination of luck and skill and magic, only managed to capture the sports photo of 2016
As someone who only a few months ago started paying for access to the Times site, I'm particularly saddened by these layoff choices.
