Debate rages about future (?) of CAJ

Well that started a lively bun toss in media land. The Canadian Association of Journalists sent an open letter to the world through J-Source and other media, noting they are in financial crisis. That set off a firestorm of response, criticism, ideas and complaints from media land that are worth a look in terms of understanding some of the many issues facing journalism today. My favorite is the response from the beleaguered community newspaper guys, working 70 hours a week for peanuts (I share the experience), in which the relevance of CAJ is moot.
