Biz, U.S.: Hey Denver! You’re losing a newspaper. You should complain.

  • Here’s where to write your angry letters. The Rocky Mountain News, the oldest paper in Colorado is shutting down tomorrow. Like, that’s it. One day of notice. Because that’s the least-abrupt way to go. Call this number and jam up their lines: (513) 977-3000. Write the address here. And tell them how much you appreciate them removing the Rocky Mountain News from your life. Save the nicest words for E.W. Scripps president Richard A. Boehne. source
