Loss of a Good Little Newspaper, the Cambridge Day - or is it

I sent the below report a few days ago. This morning I received an email from Roy saying the entire thing was a spoof on his part.

Trouble is the Cambridge Chronicle reported the death of the Cambridge Day in the Chronicle's December 1 edition.

I just sent an email to the Cambridge Day asking them if they are dead.

I will take a failure to respond as a yes.


Roy Bercaw informs me based on an AP report that Cambridge's daily newspaper, the Cambridge Day, folded.

That is a shame. They had interesting news, a good events list and fair handling of letters to the editor.

I guess it was fairly predictable, unfortunately. They were a free paper, and it was very hard to find the places where they were available.
