Sunday Paper folds

Atlanta Progressive news reported Monday that newsweekly The Sunday Paper is no more – at least in its current form.

The Sunday Paper’s site has been taken down and in its place is this message:

“ will re-launch

SP will be back on January 7, 2011 as the complete source for coupons, deals, fun and culture in Atlanta.”

Sounds a bit like another Access Atlanta or Atlanta Insite. Does anyone really think we’re short on sources of “fun” around here? I’ve heard that some people think that knowing what’s going on in our city is fun. Could be just a rumor, though.

APN quoted an email from former editor Stephanie Ramage that read, in part  “Patrick Best, our publisher, informed me that The Sunday Paper would no longer be doing news.  Patrick was as nice as he could be; the decision, he explained, was merely the product of today’s business environment.”

Talk about bad news.

Maybe one of us will win the lottery and we can start another paper. Or maybe just buy a mall.
