John Curley, former Chron deputy managing editor who was let go as part of a reduction of the paper’s staff, has posted a brief statement at Flickr that says in part:

    “Even though this is officially termed a ‘reduction in force,’ I am surprised and dismayed that the organization thinks it can have a future without me. To be honest, I thought I’d get the chance to help lead the paper where it needed to go to compete successfully in the digital age. But instead, off I go. …

    “It’s a bad time for me, and a bad time for the paper, but most importantly, I think it’s a bad time for the democracy.”
