Will the Last One out of Union Square Please Turn Off the Lights?

Sony, the Chron,

When the Hello Kitty store went I knew it was the beginning of the decline. The Chronicle started going way downhill when they started inserting Parade magazine on Sundays.

Bryce - I've also heard that all the stores going out of business don't allow dogs inside. Wilkes Bashford still allows dogs, so Bow gives them two paws up.

sorry about the delete:

Worked @ both the Chron/Ex and left in '97. Although Hearst had been itching to purchase the Chron since before I started there in '78, once they let the strike occur in '94, that was the beginning of the end.
While on strike, Herb Caen had mentioned how management and how they were dealing with the writers had changed.
After the strike, someone I knew who was writing about fashion, had been taken off her strength and put into the political section, of which she wasn't hired for.
Anyway, since he was involved in the JointOperatingAgreement with the Chron, he was getting a Free ride, since the Chron printed the Sunday paper.
Guess since he got what he finally wanted, Karma came back and has bit him in the a$$.
It was a fun place to work at one time, but they took a turn for the worse a loooong time ago.
I'm afraid to come back and visit my family and friends, I might not like what I see ; (

Cheers! and sorry 4 the rant.
