I'm posting this in the book forum because it's a publishing issue, and i don't think we have another forum in which to place it.
Are Newspapers Doomed?

Damn you, Setanta, I was just about to go have a nap and this popped up. Now I have read through the article, burning up almost half of the time I had reserved, and now I have to go lay down with a head full of ideas.
When metamorphosis is complete, the eager tadpole moves into shallow water, passes through some additional changes, and then hops out onto dry land as a full-fledged toad or frog. If something prevents it from getting into shallow water, it will not change into a toad or frog. Experiments have shown that if tadpoles are kept in deep aquaria, they will not go through this transformation and remain juveniles.

I'll try to read the article on Sunday.
What? Read the article before commenting? Highly irregular, but I will be back.
I read it all. The National Observer went belly up a long ago.and Marshal Mcluhan has always been right.
Yes, hard and objective reporting died after Watergate.
Frankly, I don't care if I have misspelled every other word.
