Post tribute is back online

Find it here. Kerry Duke, managing editor of the new Kypost.com, says it was an oversight in the manic switch from Cincypost.com to Kypost.com. I hope that stays online a long time.

The Post was a great newspaper that covered the community like the Enquirer never will. I am hopeful that the new online news site will continue to keep northern Kentucky's people informed and engaged. It seems fitting that the next evolution be online. I'll miss the paper. I'm glad they're trying to make a go of it online. I'll be keeping my eye on the site.

Next evolution? Where have you been, homey?. Online was an "evolution" 10 years ago. The KY Post has finally reached Peking Man stage while the rest of the world is George Jetson. It's an embarassing site to boot. Two staffers and a handful of contributors. Let go already. It's over.

The Enquirer's site may have a lot of bells and whistles, but its also skimpy on actual useful content. It's like they have a nice toy chest, but don't know what to do with them.

I guess Chris Graves' old philosophy stands: When in doubt, just create another blog that is never updated. Footnotes, anyone?

"Trying to make a go of it"? So far, kypost.com has all the signs of being "AfterMASH II". That said, the biggest draw on the old Post site was its obituaries, and they've kept that going ... assuming the funeral homes bothered to change the autodial on their fax machines.

kypost.com ... i'd laugh at it if it wasn't so sadly pathetic.

Hmmmm, kypost.com is "pathetic," huh?

Kinda like clicking on an update on the Enquirer's Web page and only having it say, in bold type, "Ron's News Update?"

Kinda like going to half of the Enquirer's blogs and finding they haven't been updated in ages, they just sit there taking up bandwidth.

Kinda like most of the "Web updates" on the Enquirer's page being simple rehashes of breaking news items that appeared hours earlier on the TV news.

Those in glass houses...
