Article roundup

Here is a bunch of stuff I haven't had a chance to post lately.

Let's start with this one first: ["Newspaper circulations continue to fall"]. It is really sad to see the decline of the newspaper industry. Newspapers are a great tool. Most are important to society. But in some ways, you can understand why newspapers are in decline. There is an arrogance and elitism about some of them unlike any other industry I have ever encountered.

Of course, the Internet and technology has had a role in the demise of newspapers and there is no fighting technology. But, should they embrace every aspect of it? Here is an interesting note about a new feature over at the New York Times: [" Launches Daily 'Urbanite' Email on City Living"].
Congrats to Adam Reilly over at the Phoenix: ["Boston Phoenix’s Adam Reilly to Revive Weekly Media Column']. I am soooo jealous! You can get a sense of his writing here in this great analysis of WRKO: ["Republican radio"].

Here is an interesting column by a Republican who is leaving the party and not voting for Sen. George Allen in Virginia: ["I should be supporting Allen. Instead, I'm leaving the party"].

Here is more on the Kerry situation: ["Kerry's '72 Army Comments Mirror Latest"].

Here is a nice editorial in the Boston Globe which surprisingly congratulates the Mass. Green-Rainbow Party for forwarding more candidates than the MassGOP: ["Downballot doldrums"]. What a change in how to look at things. It took them long enough!

This is not surprising and I would bet will soon become a standing head: ["Glitches cited in early voting"].

This may not be: ["U.S. Investigates Voting Machines’ Venezuela Ties"].

This is bumming me out, probably the best new show on television: ["'Studio 60’ Cancellation Imminent"].

And a movie I can't wait to see: ["Shut up and sing"].
