cognitive dissonance.

How horrible it must be, in this day of Twitter and live-blogging and whatnot, to cover your own funeral in real time instead of getting a day to think about it.

And how horrible it must be to come to work one day and find out not just *your* job, but the whole damn staff's jobs, are going to disappear -- ::POOF!:: -- in 24 hours.

RIP, Rocky Mountain News.

A couple notes from their Twitter feed:

# Boehne: "We are deeply sorry." Reporter says in background, "Pay my mortgage." (about 2 hours ago from TweetDeck)

# One reporter joked quietly about throwing a shoe at Scripps execs.

That's how you tell they're good journos -- they maintain that black sense of humor at all costs. ;-)
