i don't mean to alarm you, but i laid out all or part of 18 pages tonight at work. basically, probably 40 people's jobs depend on me gettign my work done on any given night and not completely messing up. it's kinds of a lot of pressure... which i think is tough for others not in my seat to understand. the entire operation is so dependent on bill (the other editor) and i that it's starting to wear us down. night-in, night-out, we're being asked to carry A LOT of weight. so far, we've done it well, but i just hope things don't come crashing down one night when one of us is alone on the news desk and overwhelmed. the paper we work for was started 123 years ago. i don't want to be the guy responsible for killing it off.
