Maybe we need papers after all...
Even public officials are starting to think that a future without local newspapers and their scrutiny of government and other communuity affairs would not be quite the unalloyed pleasure for them that they may have dreamed about. And taxpayers must be starting to fear that their interests will be eaten and left as bleached bones in the sun after the nosy local papers disappear.
Who would then be left to watch the politicians, the civil servants, the local businessesspeople and other movers and shakers -- the unpaid blogger in pajamas?
