Tribune = Bankrupt!

It's official, and the WSJ calls it "among the least surprising potential bankruptcies ever."
Horrible news for Sun employees.

And in other grim news, the NYTimes Co. is planning to borrow against its building to stay afloat.

:(

The Sun employees don't have to worry. O'Malley will pick up their salaries. They have been working for him anyway.

Plain talk from Peter Hermann on what you really get for your policing dollar.

FYI, Greenmount Avenue is heating up again. See the Messenger's Crime Log or the BCPD crime map.

About the 14 year old that killed while delivering fruit:

"Sometime around 8:30 p.m. Sunday, Ronald knocked on the door of the elderly neighbor — grapefruit in hand. But witnesses told police a man wearing a plaid overcoat approached the teen, shooting him three times in the shoulder, leg and arm."

Any experts on gunshot wounds? i would think he would survive shots to a shoulder arm and leg (unless it hit the femoral artery, how ever you spell it)...anyone have any insight on this? i guess a bullet to the side of the shoulder could travel to the lungs/heart etc etc..but if he was wide awake and alert when inside the ambulance you would think he had a better chance,he was talking to his mother aswell..one would think that if he was alert and talkative inside the ambulance that he would have a greater chance of survival...

all these kids 15 yrs and younger getting killed is pissing me off

The Sun is about as physically substantial as a Christmas greeting card nowadays anyway. That paper was already dead.
