The Washington Post has a new column called “Stopped Presses,” announcing the papers that have closed. Topping the list, of course, is the Rocky Mountain News, whose front page, graced with a picture of the empty newsroom, makes me feel a little choked up. I mourn the sickness of journalism, not just because I fear I won’t have a job if I decide to go that route. It’s hard to confront the death of cultural institutions. And I can’t help but wonder how long it will be before the WaPo has to add itself to its own list.
