I'm so bummed to learn the Weekly World News is folding. How will I pick a candidate in the 2008 election, learn the latest whereabouts of Bat Boy or get
the truth about the undead attacking our troops in Iraq? Though I work in the mainstream media, I trusted the WWN to keep me up to date on Sasquatch. I even bought a few issues over the years, starting in 1992 with the classic, "ALIEN BACKS CLINTON!" headline. The New York Times won't be going after these stories.
Alas, not all is lost. The WWN online edition will continue -- and I am highly amused that there's an Ann Coulter ad on the front page. But in the checkout lane, it looks like we're stuck with Paris and Britney.
