The real killer of newspapers is still at large

Allison Hantschel writes:

I 'm writing to you with a confession. I'm a killer. My victims are many, and span the past decade from coast to coast in this country. They are old, young, beautiful, ugly; I've killed them for pleasure, and I've killed them for fun, and I've killed them because it was Thursday and my TiVo conked out. There are too many to list in full, but I can't help but give you a taste of the latest to feel the clench of my fists around their throats:

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer. The Rocky Mountain News. The Cinncinnati Post.

You see, I write on the Internet.

I -- blog. Yes, I'm the one. The one who killed journalism.
