Seattle Weekly staff writer Huan Hsu (rhymes with “who?”) has left the paper after a brief 5-month stint.
And after his sterling journalistic investigation into Cougars that graced the cover of the Weekly this week, he shall be missed.
Must have been all of that Chlamydia. Scared him away.
The Stranger staff writer Josh Feit (rhymes with “bait?”) has posted a blog entry after a brief 5-minute pause.
Has he moved on to distributing Real Change? I understand you can do really well for yourself there...
I'm sorry, who?
It IS satisfying to type that!
And why does the Stranger care about this?
you people (minus @4) are forgetting about the whole real change article dust-up. slog readers were interested then--this is worth noting.
AND IN RECENT WEEKS, the Weekly has run to over 200 pages - winning the page count war by far
i like huan hsu and i found the article on cougars entertaining and well-researched and not tinged by the cheap jokes and misogyny that something on that subject easily could have been.
@1 - maybe he'll ghost write a new column - Ask A Secret Asian Man?
In recent "weeks"? Hardly. SW's best of our advertisers issue is always big—200 pages, yep. They won the page count that week, and "by far." But this week they're right back down to 84 pages, and a few more weeks of that and their averages are right back in the toilet.
Maybe it wasn't as ca-RAY-zee as it was portrayed to be becoming there.
Although an article about milfs should be a good way to go out.
i think i know who's ex-wife the horse faced cougar on the cover is.
or at least who's i hope she is.
he deserves the humiliation.
@12 - oh, it's not that bad, at least they used four of my quotes in their Best of Seattle.
Having just read Huan Hsu's miserable excuse of a cover story and wondered if this signaled the end of SW, I must say I'm relieved. Hsu's attempts at journalism resemble the antics of a hyperactive puppy: marginally cute but ultimately annoying.
I wasn't too thrilled with his articles, but who knows how much of that had to do with his input and how much of it had to do with their's.
Not a bad decision on his part to GTFO. I wouldn't want to write there either.
Remember the old adage about pissing in your own swimming pool, Strangerites. We writer-types end up working together someday. And in all fairness, how about slogging each time a P-I or Times staffer quits? You know, since you care so much...
is anyone else being driven insane by the panties on the blonde in the lover's ad?
@19 not enough to click on it and drive up the ad traffic.
