the onion pulls out of los angeles

No, that headline isn't a joke. From Gawker:
An Onion staffer whispers to us that the humor publication has already laid off editorial and sales staff for its Los Angeles and San Francisco print editions, which will, said the staffer, cease publication.

Tomorrow's editions of The Onion are said to be the last ones for those markets.
Like a lot of people, I fell in love with The Onion online in college but slowly got tired of its repetitive formula. In the last few years, though, I've started picking it up around town and fell back in love with it. This news bums me out: what am I going to read now when I go to Swingers?
