Re: “Jindal vs. 'The Establishment'

It doesn't matter if "it's the law of the land" or not, laws can be changed and that's what needs to be done.
Obamacare was SHOVED into passing by the Democrats with nary any input from from anyone else.
"Pass it to see what's in it!"

No law cannot be undone.

Had Obamacare been an amendment to the Constitution then the House would not be able to touch it.

Re: “Times-Picayune: Mathews speaks!, new jobs posted ... and a jazz funeral for the print edition

It looks like the website was transferred to Akamai Technologies in Massachusetts. The IP no longer is an IP. They are probably the ones re-doing the website. 5% of traffic is from India. My guess is that the programmers in Mumbai are pretty busy. The other newspaper sites haven't transferred yet.

Re: “New Orleans Public Library Expands

This is great. Finally the NOPL is expanding. I just wish it would have happened 40/50 or so years ago. I grew up in Mid-City (in fact, right directly across the street from Gambit) and wished they would have had a library close by. But I would have to take the streetcar, and later the bus, downtown to spend the evening at the Main Library. Fun, informative times.

Now, a branch in the Reuter's Bldg ...... fantastic!

Re: “More with less

When I entered this link I noticed right on top of the comments box a Google banner advertisement for "Full Sail University" hawking a Masters Degree - Online for ....... New Media Journalism !

How ironic!

Google sure keeps an eye on us, don't they ? !

Re: “-30-

I think there will be a sell-off in the future. This restructuring is also occurring at the time when the Newhouse organization's patriarch, Donald Newhouse, is close to publisher's heaven, if you know what I mean. He's in his eighties and the family business will be passed to whom? There will estate tax issues in the future so these reorganizations will help when the publishing empire will trim down further. Unprofitable divisions will be sold off to satisfy the taxman. It's easier to get liquidity when the business units are stacked and organized neatly.
