It’s an ugly day. The Dow is under 10K after another big drop, and sports fans are seeing the collateral damage of the financial crisis in their morning papers. Or not seeing it. Last week, the NY Sun died an untimely death. The paper’s neo-con editorial vision was not credible, but the local news, arts, and sports coverage (bolstered by Tim Marchman’s excellent reporting and the commentary of BP writers like Jay Jaffe and Steven Goldman) were welcome contributions to the field. Today, the Times announced that you’ll henceforth be able to track your dwindling portfolio in the same pages you read about Derek and Alex; the sports section is now to be collapsed into the back of the business pages on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, the paper notified reader’s today, in order to cut costs. Buddy can you spare a dime?
