Oregonian Lays Off Transportation Reporter
Dylan Rivera, who for the last several years has covered the transportation beat, was laid off from the Oregonian today, along with more than 30 others from the newsroom.
This will likely leave Joseph Rose, who has lately transitioned from the 'commuting' beat (and still maintains the "Hard Drive" blog) to a more general transportation focus as the main writer on the topic we love so dearly.
A hat tip and best wishes to Dylan...

It's a shame to lose a talented journalist, but the Oregonian is a complete joke anyway. Hopefully he can find a newspaper that sucks less to continue his career with. He was one of the few people who seemed to know what he was doing there.

Having met him, that's sad to hear. Also, I noted that Joseph Rose was at the TriMet board meeting this morning and not him.

Too bad about this!
Oregonian is really gonna be nothing but a trash newspaper at this rate!

What do you mean "gonna be?"
Hey, I have an idea: Join us "FOX news addicts" (or not :( !) Honestly, I don't trust any of them, anymore. They're all biased.
