Even God is trying to kill small dailies

Et tu, Yahweh?

Several Iron Range newspapers, including the Mesabi Daily News and Hibbing Daily Tribune (where I write my column), were knocked off press this morning when lightning struck their central printing plant in Hibbing. Today is also the publication day for the twice weekly Grand Rapids Herald-Review. According to separate releases, the MDN will be delivered tomorrow while the HDT will be delivered this afternoon. Superior Publishing, a division of American Consolidated Media, also owns the Ashland (Wis.) Daily Press, where all the local papers were published today.

If locusts take out tomorrow’s editions I’ll declare this a biblical situation.


  1. I wondered where my Hibbing paper was??
