But one thing that struck me was his concern that even if the P-I disappears, the Times might still not survive. I asked him if he thought both papers could go under this year.

I'll post about the rest of my interview with McCumber soon. [Editor's Note. Sandeep's not all that with deadlines. Don't expect this today.]
In the meantime, there are rumors of more Seattle Times layoffs. See NewsJunkie.
