And just like that, the alt-weeklies of Philadelphia are saved

There may be a little pot-calling-kettle-black vibe to this post, but I don't care. For, I'm not working full-time at an alt-weekly anymore.
So, pot, you're black.
XOXO, kettle:

HARTFORD, Conn. - Forty states, including Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, have reached an agreement with the Web site Craigslist to crack down on ads for prostitution, Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal said today.
Under the deal, anyone who posts an "erotic services" ad on Craigslist will be required to provide a working phone number and pay a fee with a valid credit card.
The Web site will provide that information to law enforcement if subpoenaed to do so.

You'd have to think that this'll drive some dirty cash toward the back pages of the alts, no? I mean, where else is TS Chocolate Playstation going to trade shis' wares now?
Could we see a return to the days of 80+ pages? Time, and a couple of vice sweeps, will tell!
