You never should have declared war: you should have said that the Seattle Times had weapons of mass destruction and are trying to get yellow cake uranium for their secret nuclear weapons program...THEN you can invade their offices.

Hasn't the Stranger learned ANYTHING??!!

Is that supposed to be the girl from the Vietnam napalm attack?

The Stranger has been looking paper-thin lately. Please tell me how you plan to keep an already poorly-compensated staff while your ad sales continue to dip.

Tranny hooker ads only pay the bills for so long.

Damned straight, @2. We've got the best-trained troops and the best damned weapons in the whole world, and we're not afraid to use 'em. Especially against you commie liberal foreigners.

This post had potential. Leave it to Jonah to make it a total snoozefest.

You really should have declared that you have always been at war with the suburban Seattle Times, and will attack them on the local news front and the Seattle issues fronts where they are weakest, forcing them to retreat across the Sound, to die of disease and malnutrition, ravaged by the Killer Whale Pods ...

Nice pic tho.

Wow. Amazingly juvenile and stupid.

In the print media world, the Stranger is that irritating little poodle humping your leg at a cocktail party.

The Stranger is Grenada.

Serious delusions of grandeur. How many people in Seattle even know that the Stranger exists, much less read it every week. The ones that AREN'T looking for transvestite hookers, that is.

I am confused about this post... is it some kind of gloating about 200 people losing their jobs?

Posted by Dawgson | April 8, 2008 1:02 PM

I would be so very amused if you took out the Seattle Times. Wait, what's this? You've previously written about the dangers of a "1 newspaper town"?

Mostly, Dawgson, I was making fun of the fact that we've been beating on the ST for the last two days. The joke was at our expense, not theirs. Cool your jets, people.

Good news Jonah! The rising cost of newsprint, dwindling print revenue and non-existance of online ad revenue will have no effect on the Stranger.

#10 Obviously you have heard of it. How long have you been into transvestite hookers?
