What happened to our newspaper?

I haven't been able to read the paper like I usually do. I typically try to get from the front page and plow through all the way to Carolyn Hax and Mark Trail. I have been reading since I was a kid.

I am not sure what happened. I haven't been able to read the paper until later at night and I thought I got the wrong section. It seems that the front page was removed in favor of some picture at the ballpark. I don't understand what happened to the masthead. I think it is floating somewhere over the riverfront.

The college newspapers look more like trusted papers than the Post. The University News looks like a very established and trusted source. The new Post cover looks like the "slick stuff" ads and content in the Sunday.

I do like the new font.

And if the Post is going to abandon serious looking news and go all glam and outrageous it would be great to find a little more Whirl in the Post.

Thats what happens when outside sources buy up a local paper. But don't worry. Lee Enterprises Inc. agreed to let the post keep it's liberal editorial slant for "no less than five years".
Think riverfront times 5-7 years ago. Think riverfront times today. The events section used to be decipherable. since their buy out it's become one of the worst papers in the area, right there next to the ladue news.
