Wow, Seattle PI online is now posting stories from "The Olympian" in its local news section

Instead of doing reporting itself. This really, really, sucks, not specifically picking on Olympia but instead referring to the PI's new situation in general. It used to be one of the best second tier newspapers in the country, now it's posting stories from other papers that aren't worthy of getting any press whatsoever outside of their little fiefdom. Hearst newspapers made a serious mistake in stopping the PI, and will end up losing more in prestige than it would have in money if it had kept it going.

Goodbye halfway decent news, hello being forced to rely on the Seattle Times, the conservative newspaper in the area.

In other news, Seattle now has its own Football Club/soccer team, the Seattle Sounders. This may be a good thing...
