Superman to the Rescue?

Good morning, Netizens...

I keep asking this same question, over and over again, and each time when I peer into my bowl of fortune-telling oatmeal, all I see are oats. What are we going to do to save our newspapers?

Leave it to David Horsey's cartoon this morning, and we might see the resurrected figure of lowly Clark Kent AKA Superman to the rescue. Why not? Nothing else seems to be working. We've seen several big national newspapers shutter their doors for good; we have seen some of the most-talented and skilled journalists evacuating the Spokesman-Review. Now more than ever, we need one of America's most-durable cartoon super-heroes to come save the newspapers.

David Horsey may be onto something! Of course, if you have any other ideas, by all means feel free to speak up. If you have one of those old Superman costumes in mothballs in the closet, by all means don it and save the day!
