The definition of insanity

...is doing the same thing over and over while expecting things to turn out differently. Apparently Avista Capital Partners are a bunch of madmen, because when they bought the Strib in 2006, they left the same editorial staff in charge and made a few cuts around the edges of the staff. That worked about as well as the Katie Couric thing at CBS, and now Avista is trying to find a suckersomeone to take the paper off their hands. Lotsa luck, guys. I doubt even Rupert Murdoch would be interested in the steaming pile on Portland Avenue. Captain Ed is none too thrilled by the prospect of the Strib being gutted at the hands of its creditors, but I imagine that most of the Minnesota dextrosphere is laughing their asses off, enjoying the schadenfreude to the max. As for me, the LJ icon says it all.
