This is a depressing little piece, that as far as I can tell originated in the Financial Times in the U.K. (although my link is to another source).
It is well-reasoned and cogent.
Simply to report on 12 of the worst basket cases does not necessarily represent the entire picture accurately, but I think provides a unique angle.
Farewell Minneapolis Star-Tribune. Farewell Miami Herald. Farewell The San Francisco Chronicle (I read it during the 15 years I lived in SF). And farewell to nine others.
Change is nearly always painful and often very sad.
