Boo-hoo-hoo!

In all the batshit craziness steaming out of the Excited States, a bit of good news.
Focus on the Family announced Wednesday it is laying off 8 percent of its work force, casualties of the latest budget shortfall at the influential conservative Christian group.

Seventy-five employees will lose their jobs and an additional 57 vacant positions will remain unfilled, said Gary Schneeberger, spokesman for the evangelical ministry founded by child psychologist James Dobson.

The cutbacks are necessary because projections show the group will fall 5 percent short of a $138 million budget for the fiscal year ending this month, Schneeberger said.

Last fall FOF reduced staff by 200.

Maybe the loonitude is turning off the less loony. We can only hope. . .

And in (slightly) related news, Pat Robertson is recovering from heart surgery. Must be nice to have access to the best health care Charles Taylor's ill-gotten gold can buy.
