Requiescat In Pace ~ Seattle PI: 1843-2009

Today marks the end of the Seattle PI‘s print edition:

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, the region’s pioneer newspaper and the city’s oldest continually operating business

, a newspaper that both shaped and was shaped by the community it covered, prints its last edition Tuesday — nearly a century and a half after its forebear first rolled off a hand-cranked Ramage press promising to be “the best and cheapest promulgator of all sorts of useful information.”

The above linkis to the PI’s new online offering.

Here is a message from the PI staff and some readers:

We switched from the Seattle Times to the PI some months ago and have been very happy. Now we are sad and disappointed.

Best wishes to all the PI staff and to those continuing on with the online version…best of luck!
