The Times Picayune Is Dead ! Good Riddance!
stories practically wrote themselves with the bunglings of the Feds,FEMA,Bush,Brown,Blanco,Ray Ray and all the befuddled officials. Besides,NBC's Brian Williams and CNN's Anderson Cooper spent so much time in the city,really getting the in-depth news stories,many believe including myself
they establish residency to qualify for public office! But we digress- the TP has been in downsizing
metamorphis mode for years- right before our very eyes,it just didn't seem so,it being the only game in town. Newhouse Nespapers of Advance Publications had implemented this day many moons ago,
and complicit was Ashton Phelps,Jr who held all close to the vest(which is ironic given his penchant almost psychosis of wanting TP to make the news instead of reporting it) let out not a clue. Just think,all of those obits run in the paper all these years, this Big Obituary of the TP(pre-written BTW)
was strangely enough not run until after the funeral had taken place.
