Rocky Mountain News last issue Feb. 27, 2009

First the newspaper was for sale with a one-month sale deadline. Then it closed.

One of the most poignant parts of this 20-min. video is when one of the reporters buys lottery tickets. His plan isn't to retire if he wins. It's to buy the paper to keep his job!

I also felt bad for the husband-wife team who moved to Denver to work for the paper.
