    I do look at the Journal Star website in order to check in on Nebraska football. I forgot it was a Lee property. And I agree that the electronic product is good, but not earth shattering.

    I particularly enjoy Steven M. Sipple's game wrap-ups. He overwrites and turns virtually every Nebraska loss into an apocalypse.

    Been there done that likes this.
  2. I love Sip. And you’re right: Thank goodness his loyal readers have more lives than 2 cats!

    He’s his own UNL satellite campus, for good AND bad.

    IIRC, Lee was only interested in St. Louis, but was told it was an all-or-nothing sale for all of Pulitzer.

    I would have said the same of the New Orleans Times-Picayune. But Baton Rouge bought New Orleans and basically gutted the staff. So I was wrong yet again.

    I see no reason Lee would not do the same thing in Nebraska.

    Newspaper transactions these days are like NBA teams trading bad contracts - being willing to pay more dollars if it clears off your cap sooner.
