Happy Birthday Portland Tribune

The Portland Tribune turns ten today.  In an era of ever dwindling reportorial staffs on metro dailies, it is nice to know that publications like the Trib can provide an additional watchdog role.  Investigative reporting is a public good and as such will always suffer from lower than optimal private investment, having philanthropists like Bob Pamplin support such journalism is a welcome thing indeed.

I'd have given 10-1 odds it wouldn't survive five. Pretty remarkable.
