Seattle P-I, RIP

I'll miss the Seattle P-I, in much the same sense as I miss the Doghouse and the organist at the Wharf. Which is to say, not so much.

In fifty years the P-I has never strongly supported a progressive position I believe in. In fact, they haven't even provided the full and balanced coverage I could have provided from my readings of other sources. In fact, they supported the re-election of Nixon.

Maybe there's a big bunch of people who will feel a new hole in their lives. I'm not one of them.
