Hero Games Layoffs

I haven't played Champions since high school, but I remember it as a fine game for the genre (in my own case, it got displaced by TSR's Marvel Super Heroes, but that wasn't through any fault of Champions). There's a bit of bad news from Hero Games, publisher of Champions and the Hero system RPG, that they are laying off two of their full-time staff and remaining with  staff of one. Even though I don't count myself as an avid fan, I hate to see this sort of thing befall a stalwart of the hobby/industry, and hope that things turn around for them soon.
