“Merry Christmas, Employees” From BellSouth

From Lightreading, without further comment:

“Timing is everything, the saying goes. So what better time of year — the run-up to the holiday season — for BellSouth Corp. to tell 1,500 people they’ll be out of a job in about 20 weeks’ time. (See BellSouth Cuts 1,500 .)

OK, so there’s never a good time to impart that sort of news, but still…”

Mike noticed this phenomena earlier.
