At The DMN, A Last Supper (Brown Bag Lunch, Actually)

Today, Dallas Morning News employees received this missive from Jim Moroney, their publisher and CEO. Word is, staffers at Dallas' Only Daily--who, beginning at 8:30 this morning, could begin letting their bosses know whether they're accepting the paper's buyout offer--choked on it.

"I am sorry to have to reschedule this brown bag lunch again; however, I have had to make some changes in my calendar which affects this lunch. I'd like to reschedule to Wednesday, August 30th at 12:00-1:30 p.m. The lunch will be held in the 4th Floor Multi-Purpose Room at TDMN.

To date we have only had 5 people respond, so there is room for 10 more people. If we do not receive at least 8 response [sic] to attend, we may cancel and reschedule for a later date. Please confirm you would like to attend by emailing Mary Trott at [email protected] and letting her know which type of sandwich you would prefer: * Turkey * Chicken * Roast Beef * Vegetarian * Ham

Thank you. Jim"

Oddly, the knuckle sandwich and the shit sandwich were left off the menu, though word is they'll be served some time around September 15. --Robert Wilonsky
