R.I.P. Dose

Fine Young Journalist has some obits.

At first I was kind of resistant to Dose... I mean, I'm a member of the 18-34 target market but I actually enjoy reading, you know, adult newspapers. I was slightly insulted by the idea that my demographic needs flashy graphics and hip sass to be interested in reading about the world around me.

Eventually, however, I came to admire Dose's style and smarts. And, if it had been distributed in the transit system here in Toronto, I probably would have read it all the time. I was sad to see it go, especially as so many young journalists (some who are friends) lost their jobs today. Don Mills will be a lot lonelier... (They were on the second floor of the building the Post is in.)
