I've been reading the Journal for 55 years. What a disappointing paper it has become. I like to hike,but I'll bet more of the readers are Portland Trail Blazer fans than hiker. You can't even get the times of the game right in the paper, and your two line day late summery, jeez why waste the ink.Why don't you do us a favor and pay the Oregonian to use their Blazer articles? The paper has become a regurgitation of the USA today.

They O is even worse. I may have high expectations, however I want the SJ to give us the hiking, the cute journalism, AND the Trailblazers, AND good investigative journalism. I know it can be done.

When the Statesman Urinal idled it's printing presses and let go of the hard working men and woman that worked in the print shop, it became deserving of an old wanna-be cowboy description:
"All hat, no cows"

The Statesman Urinal is All Hat, No Cows.
