Dean Singleton

William Dean Singleton is the owner of the nation's seventh-largest newspaper company, MediaNews Group owner of our local rag the Fairbanks Daily News Miner:

The favorite guess as to the genesis of Singleton's late-blooming crush on editorial is that he's doing some legacy tweaking. He's got multiple sclerosis, he's in peak midlife crisis years; clearly, the rationale goes, he wants the epitaph to say something other than "skinflint."

Singleton pooh-poohs the legacy theory. But the MS is real and on his mind. "It's there. It's debilitating. It's getting worse," he says. "I will not live a long life. So maybe it does cause me to be in more of a hurry than I have been to do what I'm gonna do."

Hello,

Tell William Dean Singleton to call me and I can help him get over his MS. First, he has to fire the neuros, then get an MRV and find out if he has occluded jugular veins, then he has to fire Don Miller of the Santa Cruz Sentinel and Miller's sneaky anti-semitism, get rid of that bitch Amy Goodman, and he can call me and I'll tell about Vitamin D, and the off-label medication he can take until he gets a Zamboni Liberation procedure. He needs liberation badly. I'm in the Santa Cruz phone book.
Very truly yours,
Louis Bartfield
P.S. My wife has MS and is getting better because I know what to do and we're enrolled in a Stanford program to which I just gave $l0,000 Tell this guy to call me.
