    Won't happen in Louisville or Cincinnati. Now, someplace like Salinas, Bethany Beach, Salisbury, Pensacola or Murfreesboro ... yeah, that I could see.

    Hell, even if they did a 16-page section of local news, sports and entertainment in each mid-to-small market, into which USA Today was inserted, that would torpedo a ton of jobs.

    That would seem dumb since the S-B is the smaller of the two. It would be essentially handing your competition the city.

    Of course, I don't understand these folks anyway, so that could be the plan.

    That plan makes no sense. Where are they going to get local ad revenue? Why would anyone local want to advertise in that?
