HP is laying off 15,000 people, but if you quit on them and try to take some people with you, they’ll take you to court.

Mark Mangino, for my money one of the best coaches in college football, has been reduced to being an assistant coach at Youngstown State. I know there was an air of controversy surrounding his tenure at Kansas, but I would have guessed that someone would have given him a chance by now and figured that the reason he hadn’t coached was that he didn’t want to.

Speaking of CPAC, I loved this ABC article on the attempts to find love there.
