Cue the Gloria Gaynor and AC/DC, at least for now. No longer burdened by its allegedly nostalgia-inspired Maine misadventure and having retained a fair number of the P-I readers it conscripted after the globe folded, the Seattle Times is turning a profit "on a month-to-month basis," Frank Blethen tells the New York Times. (Still, the 260,000 circulation number he offers is down from April's 289,000.) Meanwhile, the seriously slimmed-down P-I is supposedly retaining a good-sized readership as well, and the paper says its audience and revenue are ahead of projections. Newspapers may not be what they once were, but, like a neighborhood dog shot with a pellet gun, they lick their wounds and look forward.
