    So this is what Time does a few weeks after offering readers suggestions for how to save newspapers? Odd. Many of these names have been bandied about on this board, others have not. Still, who knows?

    A couple surprises on that list...

    Saw that list, too. Said the same thing -- a few surprises. Also noticed that my wife and I were safe, for now, according to that list.

    To be fair, it's Time carrying a 24/7 Wall Street story on its co-branded Yahoo site. I think. And they DO link to the "how to save the newspaper" story.

    At least the Hungry Horse News seems to be weathering the storm.

    If the Herald shuts down, what will Pickle Juice do?

    And if the Plain Dealer shuts down, to what would Ace aspire?

    Nothing is shocking me anymore, but seeing the Globe at No. 5 on that list is simply sickening to me, for some reason. And that's one I didn't work at.

    Yeah, SF, the Globe was the one that made me gasp on that list.

    That's a bit of a jaw-dropping list.

    Very cavalier, these predictions of online only.

    I still haven't seen an effective online advertising platform that doesn't wholly annoy readers.

    Paper is still the more effective advertising method.

    I wonder if the Sun-Sentinel, already printing the Post, fills up that paper void if it does occur, which I, still, would be stunned by.

    The NYDN is an absurd inclusion on this list. There are no reasons given, other than the fact it is privately owned and other competitors are losing millions. Nice journalism.

    The fact that it is not owned by a large corporation makes it MORE likely to survive, not less. Mort just paid $100 million+ for new presses and it's unlikely he's going to fold the paper before they even get here.
