Dead Tree Edition Whistling Past the Graveyard

The Ventura County Star writes their own obituary

“We expect this change will benefit both our readers and advertisers,” he said. "We are excited to partner with the LA Times and we will continue to provide a quality print product through their state-of-the-art production facility.”
In a statement to Star employees, Winkler said the fourth estate is alive and well and is serving residents of Ventura County.

Was going to wait for the retail graveyard post but Abercrombie & Fitch just announced they are on the same glidepath to the crash site.

it's interesting to go back in the Google archives of newspapers and read from the 60's and 70's. News was delivered pretty much straight forward (just the facts ma'am)..opinions were relegated to the editorial pages...not so much any more..

I miss those days...

Why the Olympic concept is dead. Los Angeles is moving the rowing venue from Casitas to Perris because the IOC REQUIRES 60%+ new facilities and Casitas was used in 1984.

the difficulty is going to be finding venues for the gender ambiguous events..

LA 2024..when rioting becomes an official olympic event

That's about right, considering the pre-Olympic qualifiers should start next year.

OJ should be out by then and ready to light the flame...

If I get to keep the Zamboni they can use my driveway for the luge events.

Maybe they'll realize drive-by's are the modern biathlon as well.

1984: spiked cleats.
2024: spike strips.

I can't even imagine the Olimpics in South Florida.

Article I read seemed to imply Oroville info has been released. Has it?

No political ribbon cutting for spending on maintenance. Do they have a sonar machine to check conditions under the concrete and detect a thin surface?
