The future of newspapers revisted...

Good evening, Netizens...

Curious about how the world of newspapers are changing? A world-class sports columnist, Jay Mariotti, abruptly resigned from the Chicago Sun-Times today and wrote these words after returning from the Olympics in China.

"To showcase your work ... you need a stellar Web site and if a newspaper doesn't have that, you can't be stuck in the 20th century with your old newspaper."

In the defense of the Chicago Sun Times it should be noted that while Mariotti was regarded by many as the most-popular columnists in Chicago, despite numerous spates of contention with management and other journalists.
