    MIAMI – Moving trucks were parked along the walk in front of One Herald Plaza Thursday, as The Miami Herald passed its last day in the building it has known as home for half a decade. It was moving day.

    Half a decade?

    Fitting lede, I guess, in a world without copy editors.

    Beyond awful. But that's local TV for you.

    Put in three-plus years there. Incredible view from the fifth floor overlooking Biscayne Bay. Saw lots of pictures today of the packing and the farewells to the building.

    Five whole years in one building?

    Sob, sniffle.

    Typo. They've been there since 1963.

    There is nothing creepier than being inside a newspaper building that has been around awhile once it is empty. The walls pretty much talk to you.
    I realize it is budget related and a sign of the times, but I do really wonder how major newspapers moving from prime downtown real estate to taking a floor or two in a nondescript building impacts newspapers.
    You think of some of the grand (not going to use the overused iconic) buildings like the Chicago Tribune, the Oakland Tribune, the Washington Post, the Denver Post, the New York Times. They were/are right where they should be - in the middle of it all. Newsmakers and oridinary people on the street knew where to go if there was a story that needed to be told. Their mastheads proudly standing marking their turf letting people know that they aren't in it for the short-haul, that politicians and others might come and go, but the paper will be there with an eye out.
    Now papers are holing up in offices like an outfit selling "As Seen On TV" gadgets.
    It's sad.

    If a jumbo jet crashes at the Miami airport now, Herald reporters will be all over it.

    Hell, they might be all under it.

    How is that a typo?

    Using "decade" when you meant "century" isn't a typo. It's an error.

    For my money, there's no creepier empty structure than a vacant shopping mall. Followed in order by vacant hospital, vacant hotel, then vacant newspaper building.
