Does anyone want to work at Newsweek? Anyone?

It looks like Sidney Harman, the stereo-mogul who recently bought Newsweek magazine may head into the office on Monday to find some empty desks.

Here's the current body count: Editor Jon Meacham, Editorial director Mark Miller, Editor-at-large Evan Thomas, and international editor Fareed Zakaria have all announced their departures.

Rumors are circulating that digital executive editor Gabriel Snyder and general manager Geoff Reiss plan to leave as well. 

As for replacement staff, two EIC names have been floated around--The Daily Beast's Tina Brown, and "Time" editor and friend of Harman, Walter Isaacson. But both deny having interest. 

Ouch.
