Newspaper For Sale

I'm sorry to hear about this.

For sale: The P-I:
"After 146 years of delivering news, the Seattle P-I faces becoming what it has chronicled: history.

The Seattle P-I's parent company, The Hearst Corp., said Friday that it has put the paper up for sale and will stop publishing unless someone buys it in 60 days. If no buyer emerges, the paper would either become a Web-only publication or cease all operations."
I've always been a big fan of the quirky-sounding Seattle Post-Intelligencer, both its paper and its distinctive globe poking up along the shoreline of the Puget Sound.

I hope they find a buyer.

UPDATE: The excellent political cartoonist David Horsey has done a post and a cartoon about the situation.
