Dulled 'Blade', Silenced 'Voice'?
This sad news is breaking this morning in the gay media world:
It is with GREAT regret that we must inform you that effective immediately, the operations of Window Media, LLC and Unite Media, LLC have closed down.
Please return to this office on WEDNESDAY, November 18th, 2009 at 11:00 AM to collect personal belongings and to receive information on your separation stipulations. Please bring boxes and/or containers that will allow you to collect all your personal belongings at one time.
Southern Voice, David (and others) close, cease publication [Project Q Atlanta]
We are a community that's bleeding crucial information sources. What's going to stop it?!
**UPDATE: There was some speculation that maybe the venerable Washington Blade wouldn't be affected. Unfortunately, it has been. A truly sad day.

I remember being 20 years old and being terrified about someone seeing me pick up an issue of the Washington Blade. And I remember being in my mid 30s when me and my favorite F.H. would sit in a coffee shop and laugh while reading out loud from the "Escorts" section of the Blade classifieds.
Even if we can't have print, we still need REPORTERS! If print really is dead, I hope blogs like this one are ready to take its place because something has to.

I have read Southern Voice since I came out in college. I am truly saddened that it has closed down.
