One after another after another...

More word on the wholesale changes being made to staff at Maclean's. Senior Editor Rob Sheppard is the latest to be let go. Recruited from the Globe and Mail, Sheppard has been at Canada's national newsmagazine for 8 years and was considered among its most seasoned reporters and craftsmen.

Apparently disheartenedby the steady erosion and demoralization of the staff, former Assistant Managing Editor Bob Marshall, who has been working steadily on contract for the magazine since being terminated, walked out, after telling Publisher/Editor Ken Whyte that it was no way to run the place. Marshall had always been known as the conscience of the magazine, a senior guy who had seen it all but had somehow kept a sense of optimism and gave wise counsel to his colleagues.
