New York Times Travel Section Has 'The Dwindles'


That's the term we use in-house for someone who's slowly dying.

I mention it here because this past Sunday's Travel section was almost imperceptible: I counted and it was only 12 pages long.

Not that long ago the Sunday Times Travel section was a monster, 30,40, sometimes 50 or more pages chock full of articles and ads.

Times (no pun intended but I'll take all the help I can get) are really getting tough in Gray Lady Land.

For the matter the Sunday paper itself, once a leviathan that could easily be used as a log if rolled up, is now but a shadow of its former beefy self.

Look for that trend to continue, alas.


Too bad for MSM types like me but hey, what can you do?
