The Mourning Call's Dear Departed

For those of you interested in an unofficial list of 24 Morning Call staffers who were either sacked or volunteered to be fired, check out the Tell Zell blog. I know a few names not included on that list, but am reluctant to mention them because I'm concerned it might embarrass them.

Some good ones on that list...their writings will be missed.

Did reporters give the same courtesy when other businesses went under? They posted names.

Did the photographers give the same courtesy when Bethlehem Steel went out of business and not show photos of people being laid off? They posted laid off people's photographs.

The shoe is on the other foot now, and they won't publish names? How convenient!

No, I am the one who is reluctant to publish these names. I published a few over the weekend and began to feel bad about it bc I am sure this is embarrassing and I don't know whether family members and friends know. So I decided I won't publish any more names. I have no rtrouble linking to a blog that contains some of these names bc I suspect the Tell Zell blog has a big audience of disgruntled Trib employees.

Boonie, they didn't feel bad when they published you got in trouble as a lawyer when you messed up at 2.5 million dollar settlement for the family of a man who got killed while operating his crane.

Mariella Savidge should have been canned years ago. She'll have something with 4 paragraphs that says absolutely nothing...such fluffy writing.

Joe Blow,

You're slamming a real person and don't even have the guts to ID yourself?

O'Hare, when the hell did you start caring about embarrassing people? You've done it so many times and to good people who you have never met, you jerk. There have been many times where you've slammed people on here without getting the real story, facts or knowledge of who the person is you're slamming. Un-f'n-believable! Don't try to spin it either. Take the livlihood thing you're about to talk about, and flush it. What a jerk.

I accept full responsibility for what I write. You can see my name. The only people I embarrass are anonymous assholes like you and people who should be embarrassed. I afflict the comfortable, and it drives them and their servants nuts. That's what really bothers you. Sure, I'll attack an Easton city council candidate who sells out to special interests. People should know he's for sale. I never attack personally. I never am gleeful about another person's misfortune. Sycophants like you respond with ad hominems.

"No, I am the one who is reluctant to publish these names." I am aware you are reluctant and I understand that, but my point is that why won't the MC publish it's own sins?

"I never am gleeful about another person's misfortune." I trust that is true, but the MC made a profit over another person's misfortune, therefore, they should publish it's own sins.

My points are not on you, just the MC.
