The Kansas City Star announced that is laying off 50 of its employees, one of which is their editorial cartoonist Lee Judge who has been at the paper for 27 years. Lee, who found out yesterday, tells me that he is still processing the news and working through the system of Human Resources and hasn’t even begun to think what his next steps will be after November 21st, his last day. Because of policies regarding freelance work his future relationship with the paper is unclear at the moment, but he harbors no ill will for the paper and management who are responding to the conditions in the industry.
