I think it'll be a long time before it goes completely under. It wouldn't really surprise me if it becomes a weekly paper within a few years, though. I don't anticipate it but it wouldn't shock me.

Ben Holden, vice president and executive editor of the Ledger-Enquirer, said Friday he is leaving the Columbus newspaper to take an academic position with the University of Nevada-Reno.

How many old timers here remember the old Thursday newspaper, which briefly ended the L-E's local newspaper monopoly?

"...J. Edward Wilson Wilson was publisher and editor in 1973 and 1974 of the short-lived Columbus newspaper Thursday (newspaper).

In July 1973, Thursday Newspaper was announced for Columbus, Georgia, founded and funded by John Amos, who also founded the AFLAC Insurance Company. For editor-publisher, Amos selected Wilson, known for his hard-hitting broadcast editorials on WDAK radio. The first weekly 48 page edition of Thursday was published on September 20, 1973, the front page headline reading:

"Thursday New Day For City: Long Standing Newspaper Monopoly Broken By Competitive Publication."

Wilson wrote in his editorial "I have never heard of a city where the public attitude is as favorable for the publication of a new newspaper as it is in this city right now."

The subject of the Ledger is parallel to all subjects of consequence in the entire US, the #1 being racial statistics. They are censored by the media / black block vote / business political alliance. The latest subject of their censoring, the economic bottom line truths, will be their downfall. What is ahead is a worse case scenario for the alliance and the brainwashed. Those with morals accept the possibility of death as opposed to lowering themselves,without fear,OR RACIAL PREJUDICE.

Print media is certainly taking a beating with all the online reading that is available.
