35. That's too bad, blm. The Inquirer is staffed with good people.
Good media will lose doubly:

1. Without Knight-Ridder, there is one fewer voice in rapidly consolidating Corporate McPravda. That means no one will print anything that challenges what Tony Snow hallucinates.

2. The purchase of the two papers in one town inevitably leads to layoffs. Fewer reporters mean fewer stories, especially fewer stories about the Bush Crime Family.

Thank Gore for the Internets.
