  2. Not bad considering the population has dropped about 40 percent.

    Really. When I saw the thread title, I thought, "Hey, good for them."

    The population drop was more like 50%, as least as far as reports go.

    That's just in NOLA proper. Throw in East Bernard and Lower Plaquemines, and the ones in Jefferson still remodeling after the floods, and it may be even greater in the metro.

    Props to the T-P. (And good job adding the Sudoku. ;) )

    I can only imagine how circulation numbers would go if the BIG ONE, an earthquake, hits Los Angeles or San Francisco. On second thought, I don't want to think about that right now.

    Claws, if The Big One hits LA, newspaper circulation will be the least of anyone's worries.

    You mean, even like the title of this thread? Katrina's wrath should be more important than circulation numbers at the T-P too.

    I'll join the chorus and say that's a remarkably good stat. The population loss is one thing, but consider how many people who are struggling and have probably cut expenses everywhere possible, yet could not or would not part with their paper. Speaks volumes about what the T-P is doing.

    If any of their staffers lurk here...my congrats.

    But the Advocate still covers LSU better.

    WAZZAP? ;)

    Pic's lucky.

    Hardly any newspaper subscribers among the NOLA displaced.

    F_B: It's St. Bernard, not East Bernard. And, according to recent research, the metro population is down only 14-16%. Jefferson, St. Tammany and Tangipahoa (the latter of which is not in the T-P's area) have all gone up post-K.
