The late, great days of the Seattle PI…

Good morning, Netizens...


In this morning's David Horsey cartoon we have a faux vision of how Seattle must have looked in the 1860's when the Intelligencer newspaper was in its prime, televisions were an unheard-of development and newsprint was still the king of the news media.


Now we are staring the closure of the Seattle PI, although it remains to be seen if it will continue as an Internet publication, as well as various other newspapers across the country.


Good journalists, including political cartoonists, have been an important faction in American lore, but alas, it does seem as if their stars are fading from the heavens.
