WAAAAAAAAAUGH!

STOP CHANGING MY WORLD!

On 1/1 David Morgan Mar, creator of Irregular Web Comic -- the best web comic on the net, and a fixture of my daily afternoon decompression -- announced his intention to stop doing the comic after four solid years.

Today, on 1/2 the new Wall Street Journal showed up. They've lopped off two full columns in width. It's now the same size as The Hartford Courant; a rag I routinely lambaste as being a McPaper (yet still read because it's the only game in town). The WSJ used to be a real newspaper; it used to feel like a real newspaper.

Knock. It. Off. Ok?

ETA: Oh God, the "new" WSJ is actually narrower than the McPaper. Oy! What have they done to you?!?!
