Many of you have seen that the Gannett newspapers are in the throes of a reorganization, cutting the staffs,* and creating ludicrous titles for the remnant. 

One goal appears to be the elimination of Gannett's remaining copy editors, in the interest of more immediacy between writer and reader, with fewer "layers" or "tiers," or "silos," or whatever the current corporate speak is for settling for quick, cheap, sloppy work because readers are assumed to be ignorant or indifferent.
