    I think the last issue of The Village is up there with the best of Magill.

    The Phoenix has balls too...a rare anatomical feature these days.

    @Truth...Breen has balls.

    Mick Gliiford is not bad.

    And Marion McKeown was very rare in the fact that she could really write.

    Yes, my life really is that exciting.
    There are some places where a coffee gets you free wifi as well as free papers

    Apart from a few journos, the Trib had degenerated into the equivalent of a student union newspaper but without the same passion and intellectual potential. Some of the better journos will be headhunted. It is sad to see so many people lose their jobs.

    I read mostly electronic media but I have yet to bring myself to cancel my sub to Der Spiegel. It simply doesn't have an English lanugage equal.

    Thumbs up Re: Print - Sunday Tribune in Receivership 1 Feb 11

    Despite the fact I'm sick to the teeth of looking at him there is a great collection of snaps spanning Cowen's eh.. premiership on the IT at the mo.
    Some gems in there.





    And pick of the bunch for me.


    (insert popular idiom)

    Sad news for the Tribune. No buyer, so staff will be made redundant.

    Never a happy day to see any form of news media go down. I think we will be facing a real problem if we are left with the Indo, the IT and the British Irish Variants, with no other Irish national print media.

    I'll miss the Turbine.....is the Sunday Business Post not Irish though??? We probably had one too many for the existing market.

    SBP could be next. Real blow if it goes.

    According to Frank Fitzgibbon, the Turbine's share of the Market simply disappeared since it went under.

    I suppose that I should start buying the SBP. The impossible choice between Tribune and SBP used to put me off buying either of them.

    Mark Coughlan tells us Bertie has been offering his infinate wisdom to the people of Nigeria.

    http://www.independentngonline.com/D....aspx?id=31889


    This worrying observation in the comments:

    He said the truth but Nigerian politicians would do otherwise.
    They seldomly listen to facts based on experience and some of
    the so called governors govern the states like a family owned
    milk-store without principle.

    While they percieve International Investors to be fools who has no agenda for their money worth rather than where to give all away to undeserved elements in the Third world. How
    could anyone invest amongst thieves and with no Electricity
    coupled with armed robbery, kidnapping and reckless killings?

    How good are the roads to transport goods and equipments through, and what does it cost to implement any'form of business in Nigeria including side-kicks (i.e. police and security commissions); before principal government agents who could sit on a document for years untill commissions are paid? What stops the govvernor closing down the company for indefinite period citing unknown law?
