St. Petersburg Times is stalwart of quality journa

The St. Petersburg Times is even under the most dire economical environment trying to support quality journalism. This is a vital contribution to the democratic process at local and state level. It is worrisome that many other papers are either unwilling or unable to fulfill this important function for our communities. I wished many Newspaper executives could listen to Neil Brown's inspiring message. They might be able to take bits and pieces and use it to improve their own struggling operations. The time to adapt in a way to keep quality journalism alive is running out. Fast.
