Is anyone laughing?

The Tribune got funny today, posting this press release and this Web site. Given the times, given what we hear will soon be a massive new round of layoffs, is humor appropriate? Here's a view posted on this blog: "People are about to be fired and the company is bankrupt. But Zell guys still have times for yucks. In the Tower, it's seen as crude, tasteless and offensive."

My feeling is that April 1 is like Christmas -- you can't pretend it's some other day. The firing resumed on the Western Front on December 26. At the Tribune? We'll see.
