List of layoffs at OC Register grows *

As of this morning the OC Weekly (where editor Gustavo Arellano has been a longtime and vocal skeptic regarding OC Reg owner Aaron Kushner's reinvention plans) tallies 19 layoffs, which have moved beyond the now-dead LA Register and are hitting the OC Reg as well. The blog post with the list, which includes editors, reporters, photogs, page designers and copy editors, is here. More names to come, apparently.

*Updated layoff total.
