    are not bad things. Refusal to learn to use them effectively is going to be the death of many alt newsweeklies. I saw my former paper stagnate because (among other things) it ignored the digital world. I am now writing for an all-digital outlet (as well as maintaining one of my state's top progressive political blogs) and I am MUCH happier.

      My point was that the current San Francisco Very Serious People (which includes the mayor and most of the Board of Stupes) are buns up kneeling for Facebook and Twitter when those companies contribute negligible jobs to the SF economy.  I expect the new owner of the Bay Guardian to be similarly bent.

      This aggression will not stand, man.

      print alt weekly now without being a national corporation like the village voice media haldings group.

      It's the same as every other industry.

      Everyone goes online for the news.

      If debt were a moral issue then, lacking morals, corporations could never be in debt.
