TheatreLouisville October Editorial:
The Incredible Shrinking Arts Coverage

When my S.O. and I moved to Louisville in 2004, there were two hefty tabloids per week in the Courier-Journal, each covering arts, culture and weekend events. In addition, the Sunday Arts section was filled with reviews, information and local commentary ... a culture-phile's delight! But the local columns soon gave way to articles from the Associated Press, often about attractions not even available here. Then one tabloid went away, as the other one shrank and finally morphed into a tiny subsection of the Thursday paper. Sunday Arts -- or "Oarts," as the title seems to read, with the new logo -- became a four-pager, with a front page largely taken up with one attractive yet useless graphic, featuring (if we’re lucky) three or four short paragraphs of text. In addition, as of this writing, the Saturday "Plan Your Week" listings were cut from the print edition. When we complained about this, we were told, "The calendar was long," and "Sorry."
