"Obviously this sucks. I think there is a lot of potential in this paper and in the alternative press, and not only to report the way we do, which is not how anybody else in this city is really reporting, but also to make money and strengthen the brand, as they say. So for me it's a disappointment because I had a lot of ideas for the paper, editorially, and when it came to re-imagining the paper, and the staff has been doing great work too. You know, our page views had been jumping up significantly of late, our unique visitors even more so. We won a bunch of MDDDC Awards this year, we're finalists for two AAN awards—we were cooking. I mean, I'd encourage anyone to look at our cover stories over the past few months especially: Baynard Woods' Tyree Woodson piece, Kenny Breckenridge's heroin addict piece, the Music Issue, the Queer Issue, Lisa Snowden-McCray's Turner Station piece, Reginald Thomas II's Poly basketball photo series, Rebekah Kirkman's Sondheim piece this week, Maura Callahan and Rebekah's Bell Foundry piece, and on and on. But that's not enough apparently."
