A Dark Day for Journalism

The Weekly World News has  shut down.

The tabloid's publisher, American Media Inc., issued a brief statement that announced the Aug. 27 issue would be Weekly World News' last. It called the closure necessary "due to the challenges in the retail and wholesale magazine marketplace that have impacted the newsstand."
Thankfully for those of us tracking the Bat Child, this treasure trove of knowledge will maintain a web presence.

Anybody heard the Bat Boy musical?  I'd say it's a hoot, but it's more like a high-pitched squeak.
