This Phoenix won't rise from the ashes

No more Phoenix, apparently - although we've heard this rumor before, this time it's apparently true. The paper that hijacked the counter-cultural bona fides of what became The Real Paper, and then ruled the alternative-paper roost for decades, is finally no more.  Hmmm. I guess the "personal" ad market finally dried up.  Oh well - will this mean fewer critics (let's hope!), or just more second stringers and hangers-on at whatever print outlets and sites survive (meaning fewer spots for fresh voices)?  Or (oh God no) more blogs?  I can't wait to find out . . .
