Journalism Death

One of my first experience with getting news online was following the JonBenet Ramsey story in the early part of 1997 on the web site of Rocky Mountain News. I was amazed at the coverage that I could get over the Internet. I was hooked. Relevance? Well yesterday, in perhaps an ominous sign of things to come, the paper announced that it would shut its doors today. Done. Completely. Oddly, it's web site contains a video of the employees getting the bad news.
