The Los Angeles Times is in more dire financial straits than previously thought, judging from today’s internal memo from deputy editor for features Sherry Stern: “Hi all. They’re going to start turning the lights on and off in each area to conserve energy… I’m trying to get a handle on the many hours that Calendar writers are here. If you start really early, stay really late or work on weekends, can you let me know those hours so I can make sure we’re covered? (And don’t worry, there will be a switch to turn on the lights if you come in here when the lights are off.) Tnx.”
