The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

14 February 2003

Two weeks and counting

If Salon's latest sob story is to be believed, they'll run out of (borrowed) money at the end of February and have to shut down.

I suppose it's too late to ask that the balance of my Premium subscription be transferred to FARK.

My heart bleeds. I wish both they and Newsmax.com would fall off the face of the Earth. %-)

But five gets you ten they find some way to stay afloat, even if in reduced capacity.

It probably wouldn't hurt Salon to move; if they're $200k in arrears on the rent after only a couple of months, they're obviously not economizing in any meaningful way,
