Prickly City takes a jab at editors, newspaper lay offs

Via E&P: Scott Stantis’ strip Prickly City will be taking a jab at the recent rounds of layoffs in the newspaper industry.

In the strip, Carmen the conservative girl mentions to Winslow the liberal coyote pup that there has been “another round of layoffs in the newspaper biz.” Winslow replies: “If the newspapers are in such bad shape, shouldn’t they be firing the editors and publishers instead of newsroom folk? After all, they’re the ones who rammed the ship into the iceberg.”

The strip is scheduled to run this Saturday. Look for it in your local paper (if your editor allows it to be published).
