Harp will be joining No Depression on the slag-heap of history. Who will be next? Paste? Magnet? Why, soon there'll be no place at all to read self-impressed articles about boring music by and for overeducated upper-middle-class white people!

(Yes, yes, conflict of interest in that my day job publishes Relix, a semi-direct competitor with these mags. But even if I didn't work there, I wouldn't stay up nights weeping over the loss of these other titles, and wouldn't mind at all if 90 percent of the music they covered disappeared from the Earth forever.)
