The quality of salvation depends on the savior.

I can't remember how I came into possession of this at the Chicago Reader before I was laid off last month, but I have in front of me a list of the Alternative Weekly Archives the paper used to maintain, i.e. the alt-weeklies they kept each week and the ones they threw out after receiving them in the mail. In the "Don't Save" column is Atlanta's Creative Loafing, and the list is dated February 24, 1998, exactly nine years and five months before Creative Loafing, Inc. bought the Reader. The Tampa-based company filed for bankruptcy protection last September, and its case has remained in bankruptcy court ever since.
