No Time for Napping 

As I've mentioned in this space before, it's been a busy time around here at Weekly World Central. Best of TucsonTM 21 is paginated and ready to go; it'll hit the streets next week. It looks good, and I am quite proud of it; I hope you will be, too.

We're also close to making an announcement about our staff-writer vacancy. Assistant editor Irene Messina and I talked to about a dozen of some 75 applicants for the job (an astonishing number, considering the position was only advertised, for a fairly brief amount of time, on our Web site, in our newspaper and on Craigslist); these interviews were tremendously rewarding (and somewhat tiring) experiences. Thanks to everyone who applied, by the way; I regret that I didn't get to talk to more of you.

We're also gearing up for Fall Club CrawlTM, happening Saturday, Oct. 6 (not Oct. 5, as I absentmindedly wrote several weeks ago; my bad). The list of bands, both local and national (Including They Might Be Giants at the Rialto!) we'll have at the event is quite impressive; watch ClubCrawl.net for maps and a list of performers coming soon.

And more change is on the way, too. We're in the beginning stages of designing a brand-new building for Weekly World Central and our sister newspapers; as I wrote about last week, we're starting the process of redesigning our online offerings; and we have some exciting issues coming up.

Some people like to say that newspapers are dying. That's not the case around our offices, I assure you.
