When I was 12, my parents took my brothers and I for our first trip to New York City and the brand new World Trade Center. Upon arriving, I bought a copy of the Village Voice from a newsstand just inside the West Side Highway entrance. I don’t know why I had to buy it — I certainly didn’t understand the articles — only that I was compelled.

When I finally moved to New York, buying the Voice at that same newsstand became a personal ritual; up until it became a free weekly and began a long, slow decline. Earlier this year, the paper merged with the New Times family; pooling network sources and letting the more “idiosyncratic” writers go. New Music critic Kyle Gann was an early casualty.

Last week, the Voice fired Robert Christgau one of the first serious popular music critics in America — for reasons of taste. Now the last reason for reading the paper is gone, as is that newsstand, and I am adrift in the world.

(although I've heard it many times from their Arties logo designers, it's the first time I've read about it on a business blog)
