Dear Members and Constituents,
Last night as I watched the Broncos lose a meaningless game to the Cardinals, I was struck by something the commentator said. Twenty three of the players on the Broncos roster would be let go after the game. All the players on the field (with the possible exception of the kicker) play at a level I could never hope to achieve. Still, with only fifty three slots on the team, tough decisions have to be made, leaving the coach in an unenviable position. The same can be said for our colleagues affected by this week’s reduction in force. Of the names I've heard, not one strikes me as someone who was under-performing or who somehow deserved to be fired. On the contrary, because our company prides itself in hiring the best and the brightest, these are folks who have a strong work ethic and take pride in their accomplishments. It is difficult to see them go, however, given their caliber, I have a feeling they will be snatched-up by other employers very quickly (presuming, of course, there isn't a planned sabbatical). I also have a good feeling about the four dozen LaMar's at my desk this morning, courtesy of Jill Daugherty (donut girl). Judging by the selection and aroma, I’m sure they’ll all be snatched-up quickly. So, hurry on down while the selection is good.
