About a half hour ago, I overheard a clerk in a local grocery store talking to a customer who wondered why there was no Sacramento Bee on the newsstand:
“It wasn’t delivered today. Since The Union took over delivery of the Bee, it’s been a problem. I heard that The Union may be laying off.”
When it was my turn to check out, I asked her about it, and she admitted she had just heard rumors.
Sure enough, though: No SacBee on the newsstand.
