Did The OC Register Fire A Woman On Her Honeymoon?

jenniferbush.jpgHow’s this for a wedding present: Jennifer Bush writes her first column for the OC Register under her new married name, Jennifer Meyer, only to announce that it’s the last column she’ll ever write for the paper.

After eight years, Jennifer is packing it in… except that she doesn’t give the impression that it was her decision. Jennifer doesn’t spell it out, but the fact that her announcement comes 11 paragraphs into her obviously prepared-before-she-got-the-news column about gift registry options for home improvement stores, it seems that OCR gave the bride her “something new”: a pink slip.

Classy.
