    Let's see this posting came at 11:29am and nothing happen in this city since then!, is the City Paper on the decline or what! The only section which has new stories in it is, 'Housing Complex' and Amanda Hess's feminazi man haters in 'The Sexist'! In case you haven't noticed a paper is a business, which serves the public, not a hobby like the owner and editor treats it!
