The New York Times is desperate for some of their overpaid, aging staffers to accept a buyout deal. A staff email yesterday pleaded with people to gracefully take the money and run—'cause if they don't, there will be layoffs. Now we don't want to see that. It breaks our heart. No, we'd much rather some noble Times stars just pack up and leave. So we asked you who should take buyouts. You named names! Now, we poll. The winner of this poll has to quit the paper, or else they'll have layoffs on their conscience. Poll below! Choose wisely!
