9:15 AM -- The Indianapolis Star reports that it's being sued:

  • Two former editorial writers at The Indianapolis Star have sued the newspaper and its owner, Gannett Co., claiming religious, racial and age discrimination.

    In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in federal court, former editorial board members James Patterson and Lisa Coffey said top newsroom managers "consistently and repeatedly demonstrated... a negative hostility toward Christianity."

"A negative hostility." Worst kind.

  • "Lisa and I aren't the only employees that have been driven away from this company and we thought it was time for someone to say 'Goodness gracious. This isn't right,' " Patterson said.

Sorry, Jim. The time for someone to say "Goodness Gracious" was 1912.
