Hallelujah! I have nothing to worry about now, since Sen. John Kerry has my back:
Senator John F. Kerry will hold hearings in Washington next week on the financial problems facing the newspaper industry, as dwindling advertising dollars push many US papers to the brink of closure.
[. . .]
"America's newspapers are struggling to survive and while there will be serious consequences in terms of the lives and financial security of the employees involved, including hundreds at the Globe, there will also be serious consequences for our democracy where diversity of opinion and strong debate are paramount," Kerry wrote in a letter sent to union leaders Friday. The union released the letter yesterday.
Of course there is always the chance that Kerry will turn on us the way he did on other comrades-in-arms, so maybe I should hold by breath and see what happens before I volunteer for his army of ink-stained wretches. Reporting for duty, Mr. Kerry, sir! Where's a newspaper I can destroy in order to save it?
