Marc Fisher tells FishbowlDC that he’s considering the WaPo’s buyout:

    It’s just sad that the state of the industry has put so many of us in the position of having to choose whether to leave work that we dearly love.

Lois Romano will probably not take the buyout, we hear.

A round-up:

Gene Weingarten: Maybe.

Tamara Jones: Gone.

Susan Schmidt
: Gone.

Tim Page: Gone.

Maralee Schwartz: Gone.

Tom Ricks
tells us “I’ll probably take it, but haven’t yet made a final decision.”

Maybes: Dan Balz and Keith Richburg.

Desson Thomson: Maybe.

Richburg tells FishbowlDC: “I’m going to bali in early may, so I’m going to sit there looking at a white sand beach and the pacific ocean and then make up my mind.”
