Chronicle blues

After reading today's article in (yes) the New York Times, I don't see how the SF Chronicle will be able to continue. I thought the Times did a great job of capturing how the Chronicle is different from other major market newspapers. They wrote about the Chronicle I know and the Bay Area I recognize. I was pleased about that.

But it's very sad, too, to think this newspaper will very likely go under. I think it will be a huge loss to the Bay Area and to newsgathering in general.

I'm with Armistead Maupin whose quote ends the article: “I read it every day — I’d hate to go without it,” said Mr. Maupin, who left The Chronicle staff years ago. “But by way of confession, I should add that I read online. I’m part of the problem.”
