My Open Letter to Gannett's CEO is on NUVO's website now

You can read it here.

I'd heard the news about more Gannett furloughs during the first quarter of next year and was so angry, I couldn't sleep. All these things I wanted to say to Gannett executives kept popping up in my head, so I went to my home office at 3 a.m. and started typing. At the time, I wasn't expecting to submit it; I just wanted to get some things off my chest. I considered sending it directly to Martore, but let's face it, it's not like a pissed-off e-mail from a disgruntled former employee is going to matter one iota to her.

The next morning, I sent the letter to my new friend and NUVO editor Rebecca Townsend and asked what she thought I should do with the letter. Rebecca encouraged me to run it, telling me to take a stand for journalism and my former colleagues. So, I took her advice.
