Los Angeles Times buyout list, spring '08

This updates the preliminary list I posted on March 4. It's based on my best information, but I'm sure there will be additions or deletions as better info comes in. I'll flag changes. In addition to the list below, national correspondent Stephanie Simon has jumped to the Wall Street Journal and Design Director, Features Christian Potter Drury has left the paper. The buyout list is after the jump, but since it's been a busy couple of days for Times-departure posts, here are this weekend's posts and other recent ones (newest at top):
