AW! No more Marilyn vos Savant? I start my Sunday newspaper with Parade each week.

Parade is joining the parade of publications moving online.

The Poynter Institute, a think tank that focuses on journalism, takes note of the fact that several major and semi-major newspapers don't have offices anymore, functioning entirely online. I used to work for one of them, as noted here:

Companies that rent their office space are likely to (and may already be) migrating to smaller, cheaper offices if a lot of their staff can continue to work from home..

Many moons ago, I was an ink-stained wretch at a semi-major metropolitan newspaper in Florida. During the past year, they started having everyone work from home, because, y'know, COVID.

Last month, they bulldozed the building to the ground. Today, it's a three-block-square vacant lot.

As noted above, this weekend's newspapers have the final print edition of Parade.

iParade Magazine, the venerable Sunday newspaper insert, will kill its print edition in November.

The Washington Post is killing The Washington Post Magazine and cutting its 10 staffers, per MSN: "Washington Post Says It Will End Sunday Magazine, Eliminates 10 Staff Positions"

Here's the Washington Post's story on the matter, although it's behind a paywall: "The Washington Post Will End Its Sunday Magazine, Eliminate Positions"

Two months ago, the Post revived its long-dead book review section, Book World, which it killed in 2009 ... but it did it by killing its even longer-lived commentary section, Outlook, which had been around since 1954. 

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram is on strike.
