He must know his end is near. Sounds like he's trying to set New Orleans up for a while



Eta: picayune = Nola.com also

I find Nola very uninformative when compared to the actual paper. Maybe it's just me though.

Does he imply that the Saints will leave without a daily paper?

I didn't think he could legally buy a newspaper in NOLA, with cross ownership rules

So what is intruiging to me about this... we all know he's a 7th ward who made it big, so the grammar is not gonna be "polished".

What I want to know is, does he instruct his sec to type it up with his regular errors? I thought most secretaries were there to clean this stuff up.

Donald Newhouse sucks.
Advance publications sucks.
A "more robust" paper on Wednesdays and Sundays sucks.
Nola.com now sucks a royal donkey-schlong..
