    First they came for the Outdoor section, and I said nothing. Then they combined and demoted the Opinion and Book Review sections, and I said nothing.

    Then they sloughed off hundreds of journalists, and I said nothing. Then they fired another 150 writers and editors, took away the...

    By Marty Kaplan

    The e-mail came when I was in Mexico, at a fitness resort that -- in pursuit of wellness -- confines BlackBerry use to guests' rooms.
