    Well it is in the LVRJ but it had separate editors & writers and honestly was the only portion of the paper I enjoyed reading when we lived there.

    It is sad that the papers are going away. I read the Sun online (at least what they let me) everyday, but never look at the review-journel. Hopefully, they can work their dispute out.

    I dont find it too saddening that newspapers are going away.

    What I find sad is the seemingly lack of the people who own them to adapt to some logical money making online format.

    No one signs up for their online access so that clearly isnt going to fund the shareholders.

    sure you can get an overload of free content online but the need to up their game to survive.

    We should see a rise in imaginative content over the next few years as papers fade away. I have high hopes for bezos doing something smart.

    I actually pay for the R-J on my Kindle. I hate paying for news websites because there's no logical way to read through them; you can click various articles from the home page, and link from there to others, but there's no analogue to going through a physical newspaper page-by-page. Whereas on the Kindle, the articles are just laid out in a list, separated out by section, which the "important" ones (those that would go on the front page) at the top. I like it much, much better that way.

    Some papers are bucking the trend. Now that's an anomaly, yes, but after 20 years of people in the business assuming the tales of pending death would play out, some are fighting back. It turns out a lot of people do like holding newsprint after all, and the ones having success are bridging content and medium.

    As for the R-J, it's been shit for ages.
