no news is...

... no newspapers?

Bloomberg (thanks, Kristin) reports today that a number of daily newspapers are cutting their Monday editions in an attempt to economize. Why Mondays?

The main reason is that it's a slow day for advertising, which is why Monday papers are so thin. But could another reason relate to that much-maligned, somewhat tongue-in-cheek definition: news is what newsmakers say it is?

On Sundays, they rest. bk

I think it's odd to stop Mondays because I'd like to know what happened over the weekend and what's to come in the week I'm just beginning. If if it were up I'd loose Tuesdays.
