How can this happen? To cover news events, you need more people, not less. Are newspapers just giving up? Are they even going to try to compete anymore? Or, are they just going to accept defeat and just print stories from the Associated Press?

The Gazette is a joke. The employees must be so embarrassed to work there. Does anyone even read this bird cage liner?
