I console myself with the thought of, say, Norm Coleman dispatched to Zimbabwe to cover Robert Mugabe in the Strib tradition, with two coats of whitewash.
Bonus quote from Bill Peschel:
This is like taking a Kentucky Derby winner and having it pull a cart.
Incidentally, the old Star-Journal and Tribune ad Lileks is using for Bleat art this week boasts daily circulation of 400,000. Currently, the Strib claims 361,172. Somehow I don’t think this is going to help.
