The Tucson Citizen’s Jennifer Boice writes the 138-year-old paper’s (probable) “epitaph:”

About 65 talented Citizen staffers are being shot into an economy that is losing rather than creating jobs. The newspaper industry is so distressed that few of us will be reporters, newspaper designers, editors or news photographers again.


It is a tragic loss of talent and enthusiasm.

UPDATE: And then, on top of all that, I spell Tucson wrong, twice. Typos corrected. (Thanks, John.)
