Southern Illusion's "American Profile" magazine really stinks

"The Southern" has put a new advertising vehicle into every Tuesday paper for the last several weeks. While anyone with any sense wonders about the worth of "Parade" in the Sunday paper, it looks like an academic journal compared to this rag.

Hopefully, putting out "American Profile" will allow "The Southern" to hire a few more reporters and give us more local coverage. Have we really gone from 15 Carbondale based reporters to 5 in just 5 years? I guess giving the 5 local reporters a raise would be helpful too.

I assume this is just part of Lee Enterprise's march to great share holder value, but don't they know we an all switch to the internet if they don't keep the quality up?
