Yes, in one way, the Seattle P-I was a News Tribune competitor. But as newspapers and a journalists, we also felt like members of the same family.
So, yes, it's depressing to wake up today and realize there is no print version of the P-I hitting doorsteps all across the region. I believe the region is less well-served because of it.
On a personal level, I liked and respected P-I Huskies football writer Molly Yanity and Huskies basketball writer Dan Raley. I miss them already and wish them -- all the former P-I employees -- all the best.
