After hearing about music blogger Kevin Bronson leaving the paper amid the many staff cuts, we find out another great blogger is slated to leave. Jesus Sanchez was one of the paper's online reporting staff and has been writing at LA Now this past year. "I'm not sure what it means when the breaking-news blogger is laid off at a time when Blogging Will Be The Paper's One And Only Salvation. Hrmph," snapped one commenter. Another reader wrote: "For a newspaper that is not known for its local coverage, laying off a native has got to be one of the dumbest decisions they could make." Sanchez will be missed by many.
