Not doomed


(I’m biased, of course, but I consider “not doomed” more persuasive.)

Read ‘em both and decide for yourself.

    “Newspaper publishing will continue, but only as a philanthropic venture.” Maybe I’m too cynical but this sentence following so closely the discussion of pay increases for winning Pulitzers made me LOL :)

    I like what Goldberg said about the comics – and it made me think – we’re way past time of changing from boring black and white strips.
    Someone should look at a modern comic book and take a colorful, expressive step with the newspaper.
    And electronic newsprint is certainly in the realm of reality. (Minority Report anyone?)
