My business model is in fact to be the best in town, and then when I have enough funding through subscriptions and ad revenue, I will hire more people. It may take time, but that is the goal. One in four subscribers pay. And yes, I can keep this pace up. I have dedicated my entire life to this work and know it will be what I do until I die. Hoepfully I can push way past Chris Callahan's retirement date.

I would have preferred to be doing this at Charlottesville Tomorrow, where I spent eleven years and helped build the reputation by working just as hard as I do now. The difference is that I didn't know how powerful a nonprofit Board of Directors could be. As such, I will never trust such an entity again.

The best days of local journalism are just ahead of us.
