He said what?

Did Pajamas’ CEO Roger Simon really say the following?
Actually that part of our business [ad sales] has been losing money from the beginning, so the people getting their quarterly checks from PJM were getting a form of stipend from us in the hopes that advertisers would start to cotton to blogs and we could possibly make a profit. Didn’t happen. No wonder those people are kicking and screaming now that they are off the dole.
And he then removed the post? Which is worst?
(Simon quoted in the The Village Voice.)
Roger’s post is live again with a kinda apology. “I’m sorry if people found the word ]dole’ insulting. I didn’t intend it that way.”
