Message for residents of Columbus Ohio, only

I’m sorry to report that I’ve just been informed by the editor of Columbus Alive, which has run This Modern World since 1993, that due to “page-count and budgetary limitations,” they’re going to drop the strip as of June 5.

I’m deliberately not posting any contact info here because I don’t want them to be deluged with astroturf from people who have never seen an issue of the paper in their lives. But if you live in Columbus and you’re a regular reader of Alive, you might want to drop them a line and let them know if you think this is a good decision on their part. Or, um, not.
