Rocky Mountain News: RIP

The Rocky Mountain News is apparently shutting down.  Despite the fact that the paper has consistently published some of the most interesting columnists around (personal favorite:  Paul Campos, who also blogs at Lawyers, Guns and Money), they haven't made money, and parent company Scripps is shuttering the paper next week.

What to say about the death of a fine paper?  Except that it's no wonder so many journalists are starting to wonder if they haven't lashed themselves to the deck of the Titanic.
