Rumor has it we’ll be getting our first wave of layoffs this week. 30% in total, though no one knows for sure how long it will take to get to that number.

I’ve been there a long time, and have strong good feelings about many of my colleagues. It’s fair to say I even love some of them.

So even if I “win” and don’t get the axe, there is at best a good deal of vicarious pain and suffering ahead. Some of the people who lose their jobs are going to be in for some very bad times.

No good.
