    Fresno has always been one of the best medium-sized papers in the country.

    I wonder if the KC Star can still afford to have two high-priced columnists.

    I know some names, but since I use my real name, I won't be putting them out publicly. Sports is finding out now, from what I hear.

    Two things. Can the KC Star afford ONE high priced columnist? I think not. Also, it seems like the suits who made the ill-advised decision to buy K-R and take on all that debt ought to be fired.
  10. They can't be fired. They're the ones doing the firing. Unlikely they'll fire themselves.

    Especially when one of them spends more time cultivating his national profile than actually caring about KC.
