Merry Christmas from rich liberal Warren Buffett.
I’m sure its no great loss in and of itself.
A new local paper needs to start up! Its all about Local News.
The online website and facebook for the paper was purchased by a group who has started an online paper that will also print once a week, run by at least one of the former editors of the paper.
It will be interesting to see where they go with that.
I haven’t signed up with the new group; I’m looking forward to taking a little break from writing, and they haven’t asked me.
I do need to work out with them the ownership of the online versions of my columns, since I don’t know exactly who I have to get permission to reblog from any more.
As a former N&M subscriber I have mixed feelings about this. It’s sad to see another local newspaper go down,
it has sucked for years. They pretty much just reprinted wire stories and press releases, plus a very few inscrutable local stories.
Michael Savage was just talking about this. He said Buffet bought it, fired 72 employees then shut it down because the paper was critical of him.
