    Hardly a surprise since it's the same company.

    Ahh, yes, corporate jibber-jabber.

    "Fundamentally, people are changing the way they use the newspaper," Baron said, adding the Globe intends to transform to the taste of people's reading habits.

    If by "changing the way they use the newspaper" you mean "no longer reading it," then yes. That is correct.

    "Changing the way they use the newspaper"?
    Are they lining the litterbox instead of the birdcage? Wrapping a different kind off fish with it? What the hell does that even mean?

    Is anyone else troubled by the wholesale slashing of Business sections (the Globe is just the latest, and biggest, in a trend that's been building for months), at a time when the economy is likely to be a, if not the, major story for some time to come?
    I know they'll still have business reporters and cover business/economic stories, but it says something when they won't commit to a standalone section.
