EDITOR'S COLUMN: Annapolis killings shake every newsroom family

-A A +A
By Don Worthington

For years, newspaper men typed “-30-” when they were done writing their stories. It was a signal to copy boys, copy editors and typesetters that they had reached the end of the story. 

-30- also seems to be the most fitting tribute to the five employees murdered Thursday at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Md.

Combined, Gerald Fischman, Carl Hiaasen, James McManus and Wendi Winters had more than 100 years of journalism experience. The fifth person, Rebecca Smith, was a sales assistant.
