    Re: David Yepsen leaving the Register

    If a columnist leaves the Register and nobody is left that reads it... did it really happen?

    What is the "Register" you speak of?

    Re: David Yepsen leaving the Register

    They still publish that thing?

    Really, I saw the sunday paper this weekend. The actual front section was 6 pages. It used to be 20-30 pages.

    Re: David Yepsen leaving the Register

    I have to say that Yepsen was pretty much the only decent one left.

    Re: David Yepsen leaving the Register

    They'll probably get someone like REKHA BASU's sister. This may be the final draw for me. I only get the Sunday paper now and the Opinion piece has become a joke and the sports is always old news.

    Pretty much everything other than the Business section and the ads, it's all junk.

    They do not need an editorial page. No one reads it.

    Re: David Yepsen leaving the Register

    If the Register didn't put out such a crappy product, i'd subscribe to it in a heartbeat. I'd much rather read the print version of a newspaper.

    Re: David Yepsen leaving the Register

    Yepsen was pretty worthless as a political analist. Everything I read from him I heard the night before on CNN by national talking heads. This has been a long time coming in my book.

    Re: David Yepsen leaving the Register

    I agree, his predictable views are narrow minded and becoming outdated and it's no loss to the Register.

    Re: David Yepsen leaving the Register

    There was something several weeks back about him interviewing or being considered for that position. As I continued to see his column, I figured he hadn't gotten the job.
    Wonder who blinked first.
