Happy Birthday To Me -- I Think
This anniversary also marks 10 years working at the St. Petersburg Times. And every time I read another headline about the bloodletting at newspapers owned by public companies, I thank goodness I heard about a music critic gig in the Tampa Bay area after turning down overtures from the Florida Times Union. (If you want a look at my very first Times column, see it here)
I expect to have a great day today -- 24 hours before the Audit Bureau of Circulations delivers more bad news for the newspaper industry. Have some cake for me, wherever you are today.
