Baby steps. But perhaps there's hope that under new leadership the Chron will no longer suck quite so bad.

That would deprive locals and industry watchers a reliable source of cocktail party chatter (why does it suck) since at least as far back as 1976, when Jason Robards playing WaPo editor Ben Bradlee in "All the President's Men" cracked that the Chron was the place to place "yesterday's weather report."

Still, worth the sacrifice.
