Maybe you've noticed that The Plain Dealer just shed 17 percent of its workers. Now comes news that its losing readers too. According to the latest audit of the top 25 papers by circulation, The Plain Dealer lost .6 percent of its readers, making it the 17th biggest paper with 336,939 readers. But The PD might be considering itself lucky: The Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, and Los Angeles Times all saw declines of more than 5 percent. Ouch! -- Kevin Hoffman
