Globe editorial: Jobs would be great

In another of the hard-hitting editorials that have made the Joplin Globe the conscience of our community, the Globe editorial board says it would be great if the displaced and soon-to-be displaced O'Sullivan Industries workers in Lamar had jobs:

Thanks to O'Sullivan's decision to stretch out the plant closing, many workers will continue to have income and benefits for three months. But when time runs out, jobs must be found. We can only hope more area employers will have jobs available by then. The most comforting words these workers can hear are "you’re hired."


Reportedly, future Globe editorials will concern the cuteness of puppies and how delicious ice cream is on a summer day.

They do a pretty good job of ignoring things, don't they. You really put them to shame, Randy.

One might take your cut more seriously if it did not come from a person who regularly takes the risky positions of condemning drunk driving and money in politics. In other words, I find most of your rants to be just as banal.

Is the Globe going to be adding to its payroll?

While adding to their payroll might help out the O'Sullivan workers who are losing or have lost their jobs, it will not make the Joplin Globe a better paper. I would rather read my college paper, which is also crap crap, than the Globe.
