First The WAMP, Now The Paper

Original post made by Tingling With Anticipation, Menlo Park: other, on Nov 18, 2010

Anyone else notice that the "old" WAMP newspaper racks now sport signs for "The Paper"?
So what's the odds that "The Paper" lasts longer than the 2 month (?) run that the daily/then weekly WAMP achieved?

The WAMP was good will it lasted.
You will recall the articles: from October 1-7-2010

Sequoia Healthcare District Board Race Raises Disturbing Questions.
Candidate Questions Legality of Taxation.

From October 8-15-2010 This is the hard to find article because up to 1200 copies were removed from the distribution boxes first night.

VOTERS BEING DENIED RIGHTS BY SEQUOIA HEALTHCARE DISTRICT?

Good luck to The Paper

OK - there's one hardcore WAMP reader out there tingling with anticipation for "The Paper" - so who's with "Michael G. Stogner"???

Not I.

Call me crazy, but I am skeptical of a publication with a name so amorphous, so presumptuous, so full of, I don't know, misplaced brio as to refer to itself as if it were already an institution.

And if they actually used a word like brio, that would be another reason not to read it.

The Wamp did more harm than good for their advertisers. It was so amateur that it made me question the professionalism of realtors like Michael Dreyfus and Mary Gullixson who were heavily sponsoring it. I'd be furious if they had advertised a house I was selling in the Wamp!!!
