That's what happens to papers who only print one side of issues and are so bias. Bye, bye.


Good to know you’re cheering for folks to lose their jobs Rick. The paper isn’t going away ding dong, just the jobs of those who print it. Go back to stroking it over Richy Rich columns.


How many people are losing their jobs because of this??

might just as well shift the printing off shore to china for all I care.


Just popping in after a month to troll?
