Chronicle Colleagues care**

Now this is a great idea!

Current and former San Francisco Chronicle staffers have launched Chronicle Colleagues, a blog created to support each other during downsizing that will eliminate 25% of its newsroom staff.

Though it offers job listings that can be found elsewhere such as at Mediabistro and Poynter, the real value of the blog may just be in the camaraderie, comfort and support those folks can offer each other.

A community of like interests for sure. Whether one is union or not.

*Ten top editors are out. Names here. According to this, expect 10 more management types to go.

* Editor's memo to staff says no more manager departures are planned and discussions begin about voluntary buyouts to Guild members."
