For New Yorkers, It’s Good To Live In A Two-Murdoch Town

The Big Town is the Big Top for Rupert Murdoch’s newly minted News Corporation, which owns umpteen newspapers across the globe.

The Post advertising in the Journal.

These are indeed the end times.

    ‘Tis interesting.

    But, in a world that is doing its best to to make dead-tree publications extinct, having a place to advertise is a plus for those of us for whom the dead-tree stuff is still of interest.

    Another signal that the end times are near: the Boston Chamber Music Society will perform Olivier Messiaen’s “Quartet for the End of Time” on Sunday December 16th at 4:00 pm at MIT’s Kresge Auditorium in Cambridge. http://www.bostonchambermusic.org/concerts/m-i-t-series/ (The title of the Messiaen piece is given in French in the link, but I have thoughtfully translated it for you).
