    ...Forbes, Barrons, and Bloomberg also serving the same market.

    I'd guess that those will be where the quality reporters go rather than to a startup if there are changes at the WSJ.

      and emerge.  Some baby will likely get a start though too.  Sort of exciting in a way....all of this while I watch Murdoch squander his progressively illgotten fortune ;)

        ...the WSJ is an American institution.  It would be a pity, even if the market would compensate.

          One of my strong points that is also frequently a weak point is my lack of deep sentiment once I've cried my tears.  Life goes on and will not be denied seems to tug hard on my sleeve after the sniffles are dried.  I sort of have a jaded view of American institutions lately too, let them eat cake ;).

              Murdoch has soiled your personal streets.  I treated myself to a trip to New York in my Wyoming youth and it was wonderful.  Friday night on the sidewalk in Manhattan was a party.
