    Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if they stopped putting out a print edition.

    Times, P-I north of Bremerton, Tacoma south.

    They've got some above-average weeklys in the area.

    tacoma barely has the staff to cross the bridge to Gig Harbor as is ... no way they could fill in more without the Sun.

    It's another Scripps paper ... one of many that saw shit come down today. Do we know if any in sports were affected? (i was expecting a phone call from one of the Sun sportsers tonight, but it didn't come through)

    I heard sports lost a clerk position. I think they're down to three full-timers.

    From their story:
    Also, I didn't mean to say that Tacoma and Seattle would start covering the area more. Those are just the papers people would (hopefully) start subscribing to.

    given the navy influence, they probably already do subscribe.
