Morning paper adding more Sunday pages and stuff it already has

Carved in the Temple of Apollo is the admonition: GNOTHI SEAUTON, Know Thyself.

First, the morning paper added two pages to the Sunday opinion section, without any announcement or fanfare nor any additional local content, nor personnel, so far as I can tell.

Now it is heralding the fact it is adding pages to the Sunday Business and Comics sections.

Among the new comics being added, the paper tells us in a front page announcement today, is Marmaduke. Funny, they are the funny pages, Marmaduke has been in the Sunday comics as long as I can remember. If they like it once, they’ll love it twice? Don’t read it myself, and apparently neither do the writers and copyeditors at the morning paper, but it’s there.

Math is also not a strong suit. The blurb says the comics section is adding 10 new titles, but lists 11.

    Looks like they’re phasing out the comments too. Dumped Disqus and went back to the Facebook app.
    Guess they realized you guys were right.

    OH, almost forgot to mention, it seems the gov spox has decided voter ID at the polls would be a good thing.

    Don’t mess with the comic section. Therein lies truth.

  5. I seem to recall canceling a couple the comics they are adding.

    The future of “newspapers”

    Today’s Second Amendment moment ….

  8. Apparently no one at the R-J reads this blog or those who do don’t give a damn whether management is embarrassed by not knowing what is already in the paper. The blurb mentioned here appears unchanged on today’s front page.

  9. To add insult to injury, the online blurb has a cutline that says: “The Amazing Spider-Man” and “The Family Circus” will be joined by 10 new titles when the Las Vegas Review-Journal expands its pages, making it the largest comics section in the country.”

    Spider-Man? Since when has the R-J run Spider-Man?

  10. Nyp says:

    Certainly is easy to kill multiple police officers with an assault rifle

  11. Nyp says:

    So, is it true that the guy who murdered the three police officers was a Bundy-type?

  12. Steve says:

  13. Nyp says:

    Yeah. That’s right. Not about assault weapons in America’s streets at all

    The gunman, who has been identified as 29-year-old Gavin Long from Kansas City, Missouri, was killed in a shootout with police a short time after he opened fire on the first group of officers, Colonel Mike Edmonson, superintendent of the Louisiana State Police, said. The suspect was believed to have acted alone.

    Investigators said there was reason to believe a 911 call may have been used to lure police to the shooting scene and that the possibility it had been a conspiracy was being examined, a police source said.

    Long was an honorably discharged Marine with E-5 Rank.
    Today was Long’s birthday.

    “To me this is not so much about gun control as it is about what’s in men’s hearts. And until we come together as a nation, as a people, to heal as a people. If we don’t do that and this madness continues, we will surely perish as a people.”

    Even Obama gets it.

    “We don’t need inflammatory rhetoric,” Obama said. “We don’t need careless accusations thrown around to score political points or to advance an agenda. We need to temper our words and open our hearts. All of us.”

    As long as the perp is a Conservative. If he’s a Muslim, then it’s war.
