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 was just getting to know P-I Sounders reporter Gary Washburn, and I'm disappointed he won't be part of my workday anymore. To him -- all the former P-I employees -- all the best.
