I'm of the opinion that it's nearly always a bad thing when choice of media is lessened, so I was saddened to hear that the Cincinnati Post was closing.
Joe Posnanski worked for the Post in the mid 90's and has a terrific blog post up on the situation and his time at the paper:
I was a sports columnist at The Cincinnati Post from 1994-1996, and those are three of the proudest and best years of my life. There are a lot of reasons for this. For one, it was my first job in a Major League sports town. For another, I had such great characters to write about, from Pete Rose to Bob Huggins, Marge Schott to Jim Bowden, Cris Collinsworth to the entire cast of the sad sack CIncinnati Bengals. For another, I loved the Cincinnati food. Right now, I'm craving a Skyline Chili three-way. Or at least a Blue Ash Chili double-decker.
