On the one hand, you want to congratulate 'em for landing a tidy online-advertising deal. On the other hand, it makes for an interesting backdrop to stories like this one. We've been a little busy around here, what with the imminent thud of the 2007 edition of "Best of St. Louis," but we might give St. Louis' Only Daily a jingle tomorrow morning.

Not sure whether we'll also ask 'em about their apparent newfound admiration for their little-sister paper, the Quincy Herald Whig, though. No offense intended to young Cheyenne, but you gotta wonder how desperate the Metro editor was to fill a 30-inch hole with...what? (We'd link to the original story in the Herald Whig, but that august Lee Enterprises publication doesn't offer free online content. The nerve!)
