Gay Mariotti Will Not Be Joining Tribune Staff (Thank God)

Ok, ok, I'll stop with the Mariotti crap. I promise. It's just so exciting to hear he won't annoying us in Chicago anymore. This from the Sun-Times:
Mariotti and Tribune "talked about television, about the Internet, about the newspaper,'' he said. Mariotti said that discussions about working for Tribune Co.'s Chicago Tribune newspaper became a stumbling block. "The Sun-Times' lawyer threatened me with a lawsuit in 64-point type. Things sort of stalled,'' he added.
"At one point last week, there were lawyers on both sides looking into this,'' Mariotti said. "It's daunting to put together a deal. This [lawyer's letter] got thrown out in the middle of everything. We both decided that we can't do what we wanted to do.''
Sources at Tribune Co. confirmed conversations with Mariotti had been held, but Chicago Tribune Editor Gerould Kern would only say late Tuesday that "we have no plans to hire Jay Mariotti.''
GOOD RIDDANCE! Please stop trying to come back. We all hate you Gay Mariotti.
