It’s the Big Buyout Buh-Bye Day at the Washington Post!! (Earlier on FishbowlDC: “Happy Buyout!”)

The Washington Post’s Metro section sent out this notice, obtained by FishbowlDC, to staffers today:

    Metro will have a cake today at 4 p.m. to bid farewell to colleagues who are taking early retirement effective June 1. Those to be honored include reporters Kirstin Downey, Susan Levine, Sylvia Moreno and Yolanda Woodlee, and Tab Desk editors Chris Garsson, Leonard Hughes and Karl Payne. – Bob McCartney/ AME Metro

And Style!

    The buyout departures have started. On Friday, we’ll have cake at 4:30 to celebrate Peter Carlson, Peter Hayes, Desson Thomson and Linton Weeks. Tammy Jones, whose last official day is also Friday, will be out of town. – Deborah Heard/AME Style

Financial!

    Please join us at 5pm for the toasting/roasting of our early retirees. We are scheduling ours at 5pm, since Metro’s farewell is at 4pm and we have several people who would like to attend both. Sandy
    ps/if anyone has stories they would like to tell about any of our retirees, let me know. thanks – Sandy Sugawara/AME Financial
