Get serious. They are treading water but cannot stay in business. Having been propped up for years by the sugar daddy who created TTM solely for his amusement, he's gone and reality has set in.

They wrap their increasingly dire news in corporate-speak when they ought to tell the truth: "We offered buyouts to a sizable number of employees last year. Quite a few took them (and went freelance) but not enough. We made cutbacks and needing to make more cutbacks, we're trying buyouts again." They should add, "We charge 75 cents per copy (recently raised a quarter). The PG charges $ 2 per (recently raised 50 cents)."
