Conde Nast Publications Inc., the second-largest U.S. magazine publisher, cut staff at its Internet network as ad prospects grow less predictable. A spokeswoman declined to say how many people would lose their jobs. The company's CondeNet runs Wired.com, Epicurious.com and Concierge.com, the companion site of Conde Nast Traveler magazine. "We are adjusting all costs to prepare for slower revenue growth," Conde Nast said. The spokeswoman said 2008 revenue would be "slightly" higher than last year.

On the shade inside his bathroom door, Mickey Rourke has scribbled his warrior credo. "I must be mentally and physically prepared so defeat does not exist in my mind and body. Shadow box in a mirror 30 minutes a day. Movement is concentrated. Positive attitude to survive and be as good as I can possibly be. No excuses for laziness. And no second chance again."

The sense of loss was echoed across the country. The headline in the San Antonio Light ran above the masthead, in red type--complete with exclamation point. It read: THE KING IS DEAD! Some banners had a certain, well, ring. Like the one in the Washington Post's Style section: ALL SHOOK UP ON THE DAY THE '50s DIED. Time magazine went with LAST STOP ON THE MYSTERY TRAIN. The eclectic Village Voice had its readers reaching for the dictionary with THE WORLD'S MOST BELOVED SOLIPSIST IS DEAD.
