What about Rocky Mountain News? That's more famous than either one of your RIPs.

I picked up a copy of Entertainment Weekly last Saturday for the Watchmen feature. It was surprising to note that the magazine felt like a comic book because of the number of pages it contained.

I think we'll be seeing tighter portals for news sites just so that they could offset the losses they're seeing in their paper counterparts. The Seattle P-I is looking into going online-only. I don't think they've made a final decision on that yet though. What's definite is that they've stopped circulating their print editions earlier this week. Speaking of the P-I, what's it like to be on the same list that has Frank Herbert as one the folks that did their time there?

Johanns, The most popular Pinoy who did time there is Fred Cordova. The most popular P-I guy in religion is the founder of Eckankar. And hey, I saw Eros in Session. Hello daw

Geez. I had a feeling Eros was in Baguio. If anyone knew who the nice and the bitchy hot chicks were on campus back in the day, it was Eros--a very indispensable asset when chasing skirts.
