The Do-It-Yourself Ward Bushee Doll from the Arizona Republic

Every newspaper including the SF Chronicle has a dude called the editor in chief who runs the show . After losing millions of dollars per year for, like, the last decade, Chronicle EIC Phil Bronstein is out, and Arizona Republic golden boy Ward Bushee is in.

Such an occasion always results in a ritual outpouring of creativity and photoshop skills by newspaper staff, usually resulting in a joke front page for the outgoing editor. The Chron's joke front page (which we don't have here, but will soon) is pretty tame, except for an awesomely funny infographic about Bronstein's eyebrows by Don Asmussen, who answers the eternal question: What is Phil staring at?

On the opposite side, The Snitch presents a copy of the Arizona Republic's going-away production for its editor. This is for real, a .pdf of a cartoon Bushee that can be cut, glued, and folded into a little Bushee doll for your desk.


Our imaginary gift to Bushee would be feathers, some glue, and a big fat bull's-eye.

See, Ward, your new lefty-pinko-fascist readers hate hunting, unless it's the most dangerous prey in the world - Man.

Hunting season is now open. -- David Downs

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
