As of a few minutes ago, there are nearly 8,000 hits on the LancasterOnLine.com talk back thread about Ron Harper closing down 5thEstate.com.
Just yesterday I was reading how media companies and sources follow a curve from introduction to maturity to demise. It is a typical business model.
This Convention Center issue may have eroded the credibility of LNP and accelerated its downslide. The introduction of new technology and new competition are also classic reasons for a business's decline.
Maybe the 8000 mark will be reached before thy close the thread down. It should send a signal to LNP that folks are listening to critics.
Editor's Note: Eight thousand hits represents about a thousand people.
