Re: “The Fight to Save The Times-Picayune

For the callous way this was handled, for the inability to even eventually appreciate that the loss of a newspaper, in one town at least, could actually be a wrenching experience, the Newhouse bunch deserves sweet revenge via another publishing institution 80 miles upstream who seems to be offering respect and understanding to their potential new audience. Any worthy publisher needs empathy for the citizens and city it serves.

Re: “NOLA Media Group meets with the New Orleans tech community

“We did some research going into this effort, and we knew what we were doing was going to be culturally traumatic” Gee, thanks. You're going to decide for an entire city who by choice reads the newspaper devotedly, that you will educate them about broadband access among other "entrepreneurial efforts." I didn't vote for you. I truly don't think the owners knew what they were getting into, reaction-wise. And if by now they don't get that the dismantling of a beloved institution is real, unacceptable, inhumane, and obliviously arrogant, then it seems Mathews and company are behaving as if corporate ownership and profit margins are the only factors that count, despite the editorials and meet-greets. Now, T-P "customers" are speaking and leaving in aggregate, and the thoughts of a consumer base in exodus may, just possibly, get through. Was such fortitude forged during Katrina, or always there?
