An Onion staffer whispers to us that the humor publication has already laid off editorial and sales staff for its Los Angeles and San Francisco print editions, which will, said the staffer, cease publication.Like a lot of people, I fell in love with The Onion online in college but slowly got tired of its repetitive formula.

Tomorrow's editions of The Onion are said to be the last ones for those markets.
