This just in:
KPMG just laid off a friend of mine in Rochester, NY.
Sources familiar with the situation say that it's "unfortunate this happened" but claim that the friend was a "good guy" and "hard-working" although he had been "having a tough time lately" and "was talking about quitting anyway." The friend was not immediately reachable for comment so any future plans were not known at press time. We'll update you as this story develops.
