The Ode Street Tribune's Managing Editor has instructed the Desk Editors to give all beat reporters a vacation, at regular pay, until Jan. 3, 2011. All managers and editors will continue working. They may even produce a post or two during this period.
Update: The editors produced no articles over this period. That's typical editor productivity. Fortunately, the Tribune's reporters are now back at work amidst the usual editorial beatings.
