Above the Fold

“I gave a short, flustered speech and was eventually ushered into the eerily quiet former editor-­in-chief’s office; gleaming cherry wood desk, slightly worn chair, shadows on the wall where the art once hung. I was alone, seemingly miles from what was left of the newsroom. My computer pinged. It was an email from the building superintendent to all staff: Used office furniture sale this Friday; reasonably priced, everything must go. I got home late that night, carefully placed a large bottle of gin on the counter and said slowly, with conviction, “It’s going to be great. Honest.””
