Happy Birthday, New York Sun!
It's five years old today, despite many predictions of its quick demise. It is the best, the only, newspaper in New York and I've been reading it since day one. Yes, the New York Post is great fun but I would drop it in a minute were it not for the clever headlines and the Times of London crossword. The NewYork Times still shows atavistic flashes of its former greatness but the cancerous left-wing ideology of its spoiled brat, rich kid publisher/owner "Pinch" Sulzberger has metastasized throughout the the host (even the real estate, business and sports sections!) and simply is no longer worth the trouble.
It reminds me of another formerly great institution.
