Farewell to the Albuquerque Tribune

It is always a sad day when a newspaper shuts down. And so it goes the eighty-six-year-old Albuquerque Tribune:

“The Albuquerque Tribune will publish its final edition Saturday, ending a buoyant and sometimes bare-knuckled presence as the city’s afternoon newspaper.

E.W. Scripps Co., The Tribune’s Cincinnati-based owner, today said the U.S. Department of Justice — which had closely monitored a six-month effort to sell the newspaper — was aware of the decision to cease publication of the 86-year-old Trib.”

Unfortunately, in the technological age, this may be an indication of things to come.
