Washington Blade closes

The gay weekly Washington Blade closed yesterday, removing two comics from our purview - Mike Ritter's editorial cartoons and the irregularly published but regularly appearing comic strip Kyle's Bed and Breakfast. The Post is reporting now that the staffers plan to get a Friday edition out in spite of the dissolution of the parent company Windows Media.
The paper went seriously downhill when it was acquired, and hopefully it can be resurrected and go back to running three or four cartoon features although Dykes to Watch Out For is on indefinite hiatus.
