Goodbye, Roger Brown

Posted by disappointmentzone on 19 October 2006

Thanks to The Rebuilding Year for this wonderful piece of news: Roger Brown is leaving the Plain Dealer. He wasn’t fired–that would have been the cherry on top–but nonetheless his quad-weekly columns of antagonistic gossip and opinion will no longer be (dis)gracing the pages of Ohio’s largest newspaper. No news yet on where he’ll end up, but I’m sure wherever he goes he’ll be loved.

Some people view the decline in newspaper readership and revenue as a problem, as a marker of an uninterested, uninformed, apathetic citizenry, which is bad for the country. I say if that’s what it takes to get Roger Brown off of the pages of my newspaper, then it’s a wash.
