Wanted to post a couple things. Actually, wanted to post a lot of things but only have time for a couple. First a story by Kirk Nielsen in the Daily Business Review about the reversal of the $18.3 million "false light" verdict in a defamation suit against the Pensacola News Journal. God is that a relief. False light is when all the facts reported might be true, but the way they're stacked creates a, you got it, "false light." Way too subjective.

Second is this story by Jesse Leavenworth in the Hartford Courant. The Pulp is all over this little essay, which asks this intriguing question: Are newspapers losing ground to the Web because they're just so darn stuffy? I say yes, others say that stuffiness is a time-honored tradition of newspaperdom that should never be abandoned.
