More than six weeks have passed since the Springfield News-Leader surprised veteran columnist Sarah Overstreet by informing her she was one of those who had been sacrificed at the shareholders' altar.
Her final column ran Dec. 4; she has long since vacated the premises, but her smiling face can still be seen on the News-Leader's "Voices" page, providing a link to her past columns.
"Look back at some of Sarah's recent work in our special archive of her columns," are the words accompanying her photo. It makes it sound as if she is still on staff, continuing to offer her take on the issues that affect her readers.
On one hand, it is nice to know that an online record of her columns is still available for those who followed her work over the years, or for newcomers to happen upon them.
That being said, it's still cold and heartless for the News-Leader to benefit from Ms. Overstreet's smiling photo and past work. Do the people in charge at the News-Leader have no shame?
