It didn't come as a shock, that the King County Journal is shutting down, as of January 21. The signals had been out there for a while.
Sad news, nonetheless. The end of a bright new project started with a lot of hope back in the 80s. The end of another editorial voice, and the only daily specifically aimed at a population numbering somewhere close to a million. (Yes, the Seattle Times and Post-Intelligencer are local, but they're based and focused on the west side of the county, in The City.)
All the worse with the real prospect that what was three may slip down to one . . .
