The SJ-R online has been kidnapped.
Obviously, the Chicago-centric Rod Blagojevich is behind this because we don't like him here and don't approve of his Southern Illinois-centric moving of jobs from Springfield. Larry Bomke will now call for the death penalty for the governor over this latest spiteful deviousness. You just don't fuck with Larry's hometown or it's paper. Enough is enough.
Or maybe the SJ-R is just building a new site over the weekend. And what if they were building a site that required a subscription? Say $10.00 a month. Would you pay? I might.
Update 11:00 pm Sunday: SJ-R online is back up. Looks the same to me at first glance and still costs nothing.
