It's D-Day at the Miami Herald and 42 will exit the newspaper. One motherin' newsman is on this list -- Phil Long, who covered hurricanes forever and was a tech guy before tech guys existed. Phil hustled at the Herald like no one I've ever known.
Among the younger departures that suck: Jasmine Kripilani -- whose departure was protested on a petition signed by more than 65 people. Also to go are Gail Meadows, Hamal Hamaludin, Donna Natale, and Bob Steinback ( who I hear wrote a rather bitter good-bye). Editor John Voskuhl is headed to Bloomberg news.
Bob Norman's blog, the Daily Pulp, has City editor Manny Garcia's list and tribute to the departed.
