Another sad day for journalism in New Jersey

Tomorrow will be the last day of employment for half of the staff at the Daily Record
in Morristown.

The Gannett layoffs follow in the wake of similar cost-saving moves at other New Jersey dailies, including the state's largest paper, The (Newark) Star-Ledger, which made a series
of deep cuts in recent years.

Fred Snowflak, who has been the editorial page editor at the Daily Record since 1999, as well a  political columnist, leads the band of scribes who will be without a job next week.

He makes a bittersweet mention of the departures in a blog post today.
