Tri-Cities Librarian Fired

Is this the future of news? Everything in bite-size bits digestible by Twitter-pated caffeine junkies with ten second attention spans? I'll bet if we fired all the cops and hired fifty librarians per town crime would drop substantially.

KENNEWICK, Wash. The executive director of the library system in the Tri-Cities has been fired.

The Tri-City Herald reports the Mid-Columbia Libraries board voted Monday to dismiss Danielle Krol immediately. Chairwoman Gloria Garcia said Krol was dismissed without cause, as allowed by her contract, as the best thing for the library district.

Krol had six months remaining on her contract that pays her $110,000 a year. She's eligible for a six-month severance package of salary and benefits.
