That ship hasn’t sailed? Really? I’ve got a fancy little website for you, it’s called Craigslist.org. Try it out for free. The fact that there were more than 30 people still SELLING classified ads for the Globe needs to be explained, when the newspaper probably doesn’t run 30 classified ads in a week.
