  1. I listened to the podcast but despite all that was said I am having trouble seeing the Star-Ledger’s move to Woodbridge as anythng other than the next step in the decimation of the paper by its owners. For the Ledger to be reduced to 14 people in the Gateway Center seems to me to be going a little further down the road to oblivion.
