In memoriam: The Boston Courant

In the end, The Boston Courant did not shut down because of the oft-discussed pressures on the print media.  No, it was because of legal fees and a judgment made against the newspaper from a former employee's lawsuit.

David Jacobs and Gen Tracy and their loyal crew worked hard to provide neighborhoods of Boston with relevant, current news--well written and clearly presented.  Advertisers rewarded the paper with their business because it was widely and consistently read.

The owners and staff deserve to feel proud about their contribution to the City, which will be diminished by the absence of their newpaper.
