Westword Lays Off Staff Writer Chase Woodruff

I’ll share the same PSA I shared in the previous post:

Subscribe to every publication you read. Most of us will never notice the $5-10 per month each of them cost, and it makes a huge difference in the ability of those publications to do great work. Imagine what a bleak information landscape we’d have if other news outlets went the way of the Rocky Mountain News.
