WHOA-HUH

The Atlanta Magazine story about Creative Loafing (parent co. of the Chicago Reader), it's owner and it's recent Chap. 11 filing; I really hate to use the word chilling, but yes, chilling works just fine for me. As a freelancer, you know, there is usually very little you have to worry about in terms of job security--you are usually the last to go--you are cheap and you don't have dental, etc. But the top down all blog-aggregator model idea is... um, I have no idea how that could "save" a weekly newspaper, per se, so it's all falling somewhere between baffling and frightening.
