A library of Booth downsizing spin

So far, I can find four columns by Booth editors about the looming cuts (only three weeks for folks to make up their minds whether they are staying or taking the buyouts).

There seems to be a consistent theme (Booth talking points) in all the columns. "We're getting smaller, but more local so stick with us, readers."

Here are the columns (and please do read the reader comments where applicable).

Thought newspapers were supposed to help readers, you know, sort the day's events, with tight editing and story melding, present compelling art, comfort the afflicted, afflict the comfortable, hold public officials accountable, don't just report their salaries and their meetings, et al.

ah well. think I'll go surf the Web.
