  1. The irony of The Press being considered a Fort Worth paper is that it was owned by a national syndicate, Scripps-Howard, which poured pennies into the operation of the paper (the building it was housed in was not air conditioned, for instance)....However, it had excellent writers (Dan Jenkins being one of them)....It was a bit irreverent at times, playing up sensational angles of ordinary murder and robbery stories, in an attempt to compete with the Startlegram and Amon Carter's bottomless bank account....
  2. Yep. But wholly unsurprising. Neither produced or distributed what consumers were willing to pay for and haven't done so for a quite some time.

  7. look at Radio Shack and now Pier One. It’s hard to recognize that the things that were once making you rich are now making you poor.

  8. Anyone else remember the Pudge Rodriguez or Juan Gonzalez Startlegram Ad where he was waiting for the paper to be delivered on his front porch and would hit the paper with his bat, and he told the paper boy “throw me another one!” ? Haha. Great ad.

  9. Hate to see the Star Telegram go under. That already is a bygone era. Can't cry over social media but I do for it forced us in a different direction, and ....pushed... us, as a society, (world wide) to be a society of daily crisis. When was the last time you used the word positive in a sentence? And, ....really meant it when you said it?
