    Sounds like you're not familiar with the Youngstown Vindicator.  It published its last edition as a stand-alone paper last August, and the column you see reprinted is from there.  The "1919" is obviously a typo.  It is perhaps not surprising that the writer broke through the wall a bit in his last column at a job he held for thirty years.  A regional publisher bought the Vindy name, but what's left of the paper is a staff co-share with a small paper in Warren, OH.  

    More generally, northeastern Ohio has become a news desert.  The Vindy is effectively gone, and the Plain Dealer has been completely gutted.  I guess the Akron Beacon Journal is still hanging on by a thread.
