I've had the privilege of working with a lot of talented people in the newspaper business. One of the best was Melissa Isaacson, who has been crafting stories for the Chicago Tribune since 1990. She is also the author of two books, "Transition Game: An Inside Look at Life With the Chicago Bulls" and "Sweet Lou: Lou Pinella: A Life in Baseball."
Melissa got the call last week that her job had been eliminated, a crummy way to end nearly 20 years of service. Unfortunately, this is happening to way too many journalists in this transition of the information delivery system from print to cyberspace.
After a day of gathering her thoughts, Melissa started a blog, which already has several terrific entries. But that's not the end of the story.
