First they fired John Strausbaugh, and then they canned Christopher Caldwell's column. On the bright side, they've still got Alexander Cockburn and Jim Knipfel, but I've got a feeling we're on our way to the point where there's little reason left to read the New York Press at all.

Update: Correcting earlier reports, Caldwell says the decision to stop his column was his own. He also has some kind words for the new editorial crew. I trust he's right about the first matter, and I hope he's right about the second.
