Another sign that the Charlotte Observer is on it's death bed. Charlotte's Levine Museum of the New South was featured in the New York Times last weekend and the Observer didn't pick it up until the following Saturday. More at Meckburbia.
Speaking of the Observer Tuesday's paper had more obituary pages than classifieds. Then there was Mary Newsom's war of words with the readers of her blog Wednesday, and Thursday which peaked on Friday when she replied by deleting more the 30 comments and shut down the comment ability on her blog called The Naked City. Cedar Posts gives Mary Newsom a good poke in the eye here.
