Cutting your nose off …

I’m sure, by now, you’ve seen the news on our website of Baptist Hospital’s layoffs as well as the announcement of job cuts at the University of Southern Mississippi.

That’s more bad news in two areas — health care and education — that hardly need more bad news in this state.

The ironic part about the cuts at Southern Miss is the administration feeling the need to cut positions out of the business department. Certainly every department has reasons why jobs shouldn’t be eliminated, but it seems to me that in an economic downtown, the one thing you wouldn’t want to do is to scale back on training our future business leaders.

But, hey, that’s just me.
