The San Francisco Chronicle may close? Is anyone crying? Is it sad that the family name behind it is no longer mythic, no longer a symbol that would inspire wacko domestic terrorists to resort to bank robberies and kidnapping?
The fact that it may soon follow the Dodos, Studebaker Avanti, Circuit City and Montgomery Ward isn't something to make many get misty eyed, is it? At least the parakeet cages will still have the San Francisco Examiner to make them squawk.
UPDATE: And now the Tonga Room. What next? The Golden Gate Bridge? (No they'll just jack tolls up to $25.)
