So, my local fishwrap is going out of business. Its no big loss, as I long ago found them unequal to the task of wrapping fish properly. Youd think they would at least try to get that right.
Kate Marymont, Gannett Co. vice president for news, told the newspaper's staff Friday that the paper will continue with a Web site edition providing commentary and opinion but no news coverage.
So, really, nothing at all has changed. I cant remember the last time I looked at one of the local newspapers - or any newspaper, for that matter - but if I had found some honest news in it, I probably would have kept buying it on occasion.

It seems that even in a desperate bid to find creative ways to remain in business, that approach was just too crazy to consider.
