    I'm not sure if this belongs on this board or the news board, and I hope it's not a D_B (yes, I did a search), but here goes:


    I know times are hard in this business, but I never thought it would come to this. My favorite newspaper of all time is folding.

    Let us all mourn now the passing of the Weekly World News.

    A moment of silence, please.
     
  2. Yes this is a DB.
    This news is about three weeks old. The thread, which is also about three weeks old, appeared on the Anything Goes I think.
    Don't despair, The Weekly World News is only ceasing print production. It will still be availble online.
     
  3. Children are writing letters to Bat Boy in the last print edition.

    Isn't it about time that we change the old cornball joke to:

    "What's black and white and folds all over?"
     
  7. I read the first line and saw the link at the same time...

    For a second, I thought the Washington Post was folding.

    I'm devastated, that is the "paper" that I always wanted to end my career at.
