Even worse

Clark County in Washington - anchored by Vancouver - has for the last decade been one of the fastest-growing, and evidently prosperous, places in the Northwest. So bad off is the newspaper industry today that Portland's Willamette Week today reports this about Vancouver's locally-owned daily newspaper:

"Three months after news of layoffs across the river at The (Vancouver) Columbian there's this latest blow to the paper, in which the daily is moving from its new building back to its old office, as part of a cost-cutting move. And in an even more ominous note, Publisher Scott Campbell is quoted as at least considering the prospect of the business seeking 'temporary Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection from creditors' as one option."

Where will we be two years from now?
