I hope I won't miss the old Washington Post. I won't know for a while--none of us will. The old Post was a fine, distinguished--your choice of complimentary adjectives--newspaper. It broke the first news of the Watergate scandal, which led to the only presidential resignation in our history--Richard Nixon's. It's done a lot of other good stuff over the years too. I think the Graham family, which owned it, gets a lot of the credit. The new man? We'll have to wait and see.
One other political note--a couple of networks are planning programs about Hillary Clinton, a likely 2016 presidential candidate. This has led the Republicans to say: if you do that, we'll rethink our participation in the 2016 presidential debates. If I were the Democrats, I'd say, go ahead guys--we'll have debates with the Socialist, the Unitarian candidates, any others we can scare up. I bet people would watch--not as many, but quite a few. Plus there'd be lots of stories about the Republican wimping out.
Good thinking, GOP? Maybe not.
