Contrary to popular belief, the regional news will never die. Not when there is a voracious appetite for hard hitting news. Just see this Pulitzer Prize winning example from the Dorking Advertiser:

Dorking’s famous albino squirrel is dead

Saturday, October 31, 2009
A much-loved white squirrel was killed after he was hit by a car in Dorking this week. The squirrel was killed as he crossed Mill Lane just after 3pm.

(Thanks to @jonwelsh for the tip off.)
