grove600: @OCCountry: Don't know if you remember, but several of us got into it with JT or Joe about the paper's revenues. They insisted it was from subscriptions more than ads, but that's a big steamy pile...

Duke Briscoe: Yes, unfortunate that the comments are missing. Plus the older articles' comments are missing as well I expect - a bit of a loss of history for future electronic archaeologists. I haven't seen any...

OCCountry: @kwijibojunior Guess I could go on a tantrum about freedom of speech but I guess the news papers are a business and can do as they see fit. Still one of the reasons I read the paper online is for...
