No News Is Good News
"Maybe soon it will be time to retire the obituary page of San Francisco's Bay Area Reporter
. For years the page has been one of the most powerful statements in journalism, with pictures of dozen of people, mostly young, who died of AIDS. The Jan. 2 issue contained only two obituaries...Editor Mike Salinas says that the week when no obituaries come in, the page won't be canceled, but moved to the front page. Hope lives."
--San Francisco Examiner columnist Rob Morse
