Tight budgets, but production goes on

The Seattle Post-Globe – an online aftermath spinoff from the old Post-Intelligencer staff – has been running some interesting material, some of it on local politics and other governmental actions. But the link today is a little more direct, about the Post-Globe itself.

Fundraising standard practice probably wouldn’t suggest trumpeting, “We’ve raised enough to pay our all-freelance staff of writers for another two or three weeks.” (And yes, that’s apparently as far as it goes at the moment.)

But the piece also points out that there’ve been a number of useful efforts in the last couple of months. Among the headlines: “‘Nickelsville’ told to move again” (concerns a homeless encampment); “City Light superintendent’s bonus was much more than he’d received before”; “Seattle mayoral debate focuses on Nickels and Mallahan” and a number of others.

You might take a look.
