Flapping In The LoDo Wind

I left Denver in August 2003, and while I’m in touch with a few friends who work in the business there, I’m pretty much out of the loop. Which is one reason I enjoy reading The Denver Egotist.
Here’s something The Egotist posted today that has me scratching my chin.

McClain Finlon had another round of layoffs, with pretty much everyone not connected to an existing account receiving paid severance. The head count is around 20.

I’m not sure what to make of this assertion. Just two weeks ago, Denver Business Journal, reported that the agency had 158 staffers.
What’s not in question is the fact that McClain Finlon lost marquis account Qwest Communications to DraftFCB last winter.
