Another Newspaper Purge: Lileks a Casualty of Minneapolis Star-Tribune cuts

Hugh Hewitt is not a happy camper. I don't live in Minneapolis so I don't read the Strib but I do read Lileks' blog--and since James--a great writer and an expert in all things Americana--does not wax political (in the newspaper column at least), it is difficult to understand what the Einsteins over at the Strib might be thinking. The American Thinker calls it a "death wish."

Meanwhile the entire lefty blogosphere is going bonkers about Lileks getting the ax. I suppose, given their stunning and overwhelming defeat in France yesterday, the Left needs something to cling to. But this really is a shame: one of the most hard-left papers in the US has now lost even more credibility. And you wonder why newspapers are losing money hand over fist...
