Down The Rat Hole With Sid Vicious

As of March 31, 2003, pretty left wing Salon had an accumulated deficit of $82.3 million.

Now Sidney Blumenthal may become the editor of a presumably pretty left wing weekly U.S. magazine to be put out by The Guardian, the pretty left wing British newspaper.

One can hardly imagine a better use to which The Guardian could put its cash on hand. In fact, why doesn't The Guardian just buy the Salon assets. All of the big money-loosing elements are already in place! There would be no need to ramp up before dropping those many tens of millions of dollars down the rat hole of yet another superfluous left-wing news periodical!

Referring to liberal print news coverage, Sid sez: "I think there's a big vacuum."

Who could disagree? Sid's just the kind of guy one would most like to see placed in just that vacuum!
