Actually Finney was purchased by Tom Benson who plans to rename him "The Bishop" He will write a bi-monthly column for FOX8live.com focused mainly on the glory years of New Orleans Catholic high school football from the 40s and 50s.

I hope Benson plans to provide him with booze. Mr. Finney is an old school drinking man.

As you well know better than I, The Picayune may or may not be on life support (that is, a lot of papers are pleading as paupers even while they are still making a profit - just not as big a profit as they want).

But if it is on "life support", how is a life support patient supposed to recover in the midst of having parts routinely cut off and organs harvested for sale on the transplant open market ?

@Maple: Picayune is *now* on life support. It's been profitable for the last 4 years. Newhouse is gambling that advertisers wihh have to buy at NOLA.com without a daily paper.
