    In a meeting with our publisher today, he said our circulation in the last quarter actually went up. Our overall revenue isn't doing so well -- advertising is an issue. But it was a dose of good news, I thought.

    Circ is up at my place too. So is web readership. Doesn't mean we're outta the woods.

    Unless ad revenue is up, it doesn't mean shit.

    The two should be tied together, but it doesn't always work out that way.

    Money now talks so much louder than anything said about a well-written story.

    Little Johnny's grandma appreciated the story you wrote about her son dying of cancer. That's great and meaningful.

    But the suits don't really care unless Little Johnny's grandma buys 100 newspapers, runs ads a couple ads and helps the newspaper make a profit this year.
