Final edition: Twilight of the American newspaper—By Richard Rodriguez
"When a newspaper dies in America, it is not simply that a commercial enterprise has failed; a sense of place has failed. ... We will end up with one and a half cities in America -- Washington, D.C., and American Idol. We will all live in Washington, D.C., where the conversation is a droning, never advancing, debate between "conservatives" and "liberals." We will not read about newlyweds. We will not read about the death of salesmen."
