The Stranger reports that 23 people are going to leave the Seattle Times. That includes the book editor, Mary Ann Gwins, and Matt Pentz, who covers the Sounders. (I think they play soccer, or maybe baseball, or maybe lacrosse?) Meanwhile, the KOMO television station just went through layoffs that included their investigative reporting team. And Northwest Cable News is going off the air. That's a lot of layoffs in a short amount of time.
