The problem with staples, though, is that they make it harder to use the paper in animal/bird cages.

Nothing like seeing bits and pieces of old newspaper blowing all over the neighborhood. And the staple helps me keep my place.

The Onion does fine without staples. So does 77 Square, the Cap Times, Madison Times (if it still exists), Hues, Simpson St. Free Press etc., etc.

I believe Isthmus is well aware that the death of it's print version is imminent.

With apologies to Eve Plumb, the Isthmus enterprise has been all "Blaska, Blaska, Blaska!" the last year or so.

Why haven't they shifted Blaska's blog to the paper? It would be a sure thing every week. Instead they have the dumbass "Tell All", and Vikki Kratz left so there's no one to mock anymore.

It's a new world folks.

I think there is still a place for a print alt-weekly in Madison.

Thing is, it has to be true to the "alt" part of alt-weekly.

Staples. heh.

I have lived in a few cities in my time and the free weeklies have always kicked ass. How cool is it that you can get a free paper that has stuff you want to read?

One of the first things I picked up 20 years ago moving into town was an Isthmus.

You will be sad if the Isthmus goes away. Don't shit on it.

As long as I am on my high horse, the Isthmus should stop knocking down the other papers when they make a mistake. It is ugly.
