No Laughing Matter: The Onion SF is Dead

Thanks again, economy. You can't really take anything seriously when speaking about The Onion, but word from Gawker is that the humor paper is closing it's San Francisco and Los Angeles editions. Despite lauching and thriving in 2005/2006, a time when newspapers were getting blistered by Craigslist, Yelp, and Google (and, still are) The Onion gobbled up young readers with its not so hard-hitting news. It's a sad day but look on the bright side: no more ink on your fingers. And, more time spent on their awesome website!
