Death Knell for Dorchester

Dorchester Publishing (1971--?) has gone from bad to worse to OMFG.  Smart Bitches spread the word they they had laid off the entire editorial workforce barr one and their distribution system has broken down.  Which surely must spell the beginning of the end for this press. Expect to hear about portions of the company being sold off, or outright bankruptcy, very soon.

"President John Prebich said the departures of the two were part of Dorchester adusting staff to its new operating plan."  [via PW] Firing competent staff is an adjustment in the direction of not operating.  It may not be their plan but it sure is my prediction.
