A Sad Day



The final day of publication for my beloved Seattle P-I. I learned to read with the P-I, and it's always been my favorite newspaper. Who's going to keep Seattle honest now?

And I so am not going to read an online newspaper. Bah!

I am going to miss the recipes! They always had great recipes in the local section. What? Do I have to buy a cookbook now?

Pia said...

Why not, you read trashy star blogs online? And when do you ever read the PI other then when you're in Seattle? Now, you have a good reason to do so.

Thanks Pia aka Debbie Downer. I read the PI every single day of my life from the age of 5 until I moved to this godforsaken newspaper town. "Pretty Good Paper" indeed! And I would have read the PI every day HERE if I could have gotten it. So fie on you! And Lis, their recipes were good, I agree. Maybe there is a PI cookbook?

why couldn't it have been the Times? boo....

Pia said...

I'm NOT being a Debbie Downer, I am pointing out that you can still read it in an on-line version. And probably still get the recipes. Just saying... Besides, I thought BZ was the techno-phob, not you.

Pia Irene - you of all people should know that holding a newspaper (with a cup of coffee and a piece of pie for breakfast) will NEVER be replaced by a cold, heartless screen - and of course you can trust EVERYTHING you read on-line . . .

Laurie said...

exactly. Until you can also read the online version on the potty, I'm boycotting.

I will so miss the quick little gossip/hollywood section in Life & Arts page 2. BOO...fucking...hiss.
