I am not going to just sit here while you badmouth Isthmus!
So I am typing this standing up!
Of course Isthmus can do better! They WILL do better!
Everything they do is better:
better than them!
Folks:
No matter how much I bitch at Isthmus, it is always in the spirit of breaking theirs so they can unencumbered rise phoenix-like as an even more bedazzled version of their own iconic monolithic existence within local-- NAY-- international local newspaper circles!!!
Don't get it twisted!

Like a true patriot, in the eternally loving spirit of compassionate dissent,
I critique because I love.
I am a card-carrying member of the Isthmonian Institute!
I am a lover of all things Isthmus!
Life has been Isthmutized for our protection!
All this ribbing is for YOUR pleasure!
ISTHMUS!!!

I just want Isthmus to realize that their current market share is currently comprised of 53 year-old, white, co-op shoppers who graduated from UW and that once they cease to remain a market-force (i.e. now), Isthmus better be prepared to start offering a product that appeals to a younger, more urbane readership. I think Isthmus, should it not be brought down by the prevailing forces within, needs to look towards Seattle's "The Stranger," the "Independent Weekly" from Durham or even "The Sheppard Express" as examples of what an alternative news weekly should offer. But then again, I'm not the target audience so maybe I should just get off their lawn and turn down the racket.
