Things aren't going well for the newspaper industry across the pond, according to a story in The Guardian (guardian..co.uk).

"The Evolution of News and the Internet," a report prepared by the Organsation for Economic Cooperation and Development ("OECD"), revealed that since 2007, the U.K. is second only to the U.S. in declining newspaper circulation. Between 2007-2009, newspaper circulation dropped 25 percent in the U.K., compared to a 30 percent plunge in the U.S. Other nations that experienced a dramatic drop in newspaper readership included Greece at 20 percent; Italy, 18 percent; and Canada at 17 percent. In all, 20 of the 30 OECD nations surveyed experienced a decline in newspaper circulation.
