Strongly suggest parents and potential students look up their potential university/college of choice and look to see what the incoming freshman college reading is:

It’s been a poorly written rag for years. We stopped taking it 15 years ago, even without another local option. Depending on who replaces him, maybe I’ll give it another shot.

Maybe.

Reminds me just a little (and I mean JUST a little) of the downward spiral of the LA Daily News, which for about 25 years has been the (only) “other paper” in LA other than the arch-leftist Times. (What is the point, even as a business matter, of having both of a city’s two major papers be lefty?)

What I mean is: in 2004, the Daily News endorsed KERRY / EDWARDS. I immediately canceled my subscription — and it was obvious from the reaction of the subscriptions phone jockey with whom I spoke that SCORES of folks already had done so that very morning.

In the mid-90’s it was gay news and gay headlines just about every day. When Bush said he supported the Defense of Marriage act, the main headline, in doomsday type, said BUSH ATTACKS GAY MARRAIGE!

Front-page news about Gay picnics and Gay pride day and on and on. Articles in defense of teenagers accessing pornography. Pornography is good for you, new study claims. It just never ended. That’s when the paper really started losing readership and never regained it.

Even so I am surprised it’s down to 133,000 or so. But glad.

The SA Express News has been a crap paper for a long time and the makeup of the city council reflects the liberal bias of the paper. SA used to be a nice city, but the liberals on the city council are turning it into a liberal-regulated nightmare that regulates when and wher you can take a breath!!

The more of these leftist goons we can unload, the sooner this city might return to a charming and leading vacation destination in Texas.

I canceled my subscription to the EN when it was bought out by the San Antonio Light. That’s when it really started tilting more and more.
Can’t remember how many years ago that was.

As a High School student at Alamo Heights back in mid 60s I got up at 4 AM to roll and throw Express and News papers to about 300 homes, and then again in the afternoon for about half as many. Was a great gig for a 15/16 year old and it paid for my Vespa motor scooter. Sold subscriptions and did collections on late accounts. Taught me to work hard and how to sell. Seriously doubt any young kid could have the same opportunity today....too many regulations and laws protecting (disabling)them.
