Two if by sea

300px-titanic_southhampton1.jpg  I can’t help but see the irony in this:  The local paper names a new publisher in September, just as the economy is going south, then the publisher decides to as well.  To be specific, he’s going on a cruise ship.  Yup, you can cruise the Sea of Crotez with George Cogswell III…’no flying’ it reads. “Only 1,266 passengers” it advertises.  Call me crazy, but that still sounds like a lot of folks.    Most certainly a legitimate business expense for the paper; just doing research to help the new publication Frontera grow.  Ei Caramba!

An abreviated history of  the Star’s circulations:
