I, FOR ONE, WELCOME OUR NEW INSECT OVERLORDS: The Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News have been sold to a group led by a Republican PR executive who has spent much time bashing the paper and Mr. McMansion.
Still, in an era in which media consolidation is the rule, there's something exciting about returning both papers to local control. There is exceptional talent at both ends of 400 N. Broad Street, and let's hope the new owners give our journalists the resources they need to do their jobs, a platform from which more can appreciate it . . . and then stay out of their way.
