FishbowlDC is reporting that the recently merged Congressional Quarterly/Roll Call is in the process of a huge staffing cut right now. A total of 44 editorial positions, with one group from the CQ side losing 25. You’ll recall that RC purchased CQ back in late July, so it’s little surprise that people who were at CQ were more likely to be shown the door.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
