The end of the Copley-era at the Union-Tribune apparently arrived yesterday when workers at the Mission Valley plant were photographed preparing to pry the huge bronze Copley Press "Ring of Truth" logo from the building. Next to go, reportedly today, is the logo on the sign at the front of the building. According one report, the sale of the paper to a venture owned by Beverly Hills-based Platinum Equity is to close tomorrow, Monday May 4.

You think that might have been more your content of character, not the organization? All of the employees there certainly couldn't have attained the douche-bag status you had.

Or he can use it as a belt buckle.

Wow, that "Ring of Truth" sculpture is one cool logo!

I wish I could buy that.... I wonder what David would sell it for?

This pic was taken by Adam Gerik, a photographer/Web guy at the Peoria Journal Star, which was sold by Copley in April 2007.

SurfPuppy619... the irony is that bronze pig from Miguel's should have been used to replace that "Tig of Truth" logo. At least while David Copley owned the UT.

Thanks for the link!

"Marc Cooper, who reviewed the "demise" of his old LA Weekly stamping grounds in January, compared the present cultural atmosphere to that of 1490, not long after the Gutenberg printing press had been invented."

The logo on the sign out front is already gone, as is the Copley flag that flew along side the California state flag. Everything with Copley on it is gone, even the door mats at the entrance to the building... and our morale. :(

David can use it as an anchor on his yacht, Happy Days.

Wasn't the motto under David "Wring Out the Truth"?

What's that children's song? "Make new friends and keep the old; some are silver and the others are gold." Probably the Beverly Hills guys are going to melt down the bronze logo and put up a platinum one. And if tomorrow is the End of the Copley Press, where do we go to lift a glass to the new owners?

Oh, it's a sad, sad day in San Diego. I suspect the next sign going up on that building will read "Fashion Valley Mall South." David Copley's former office will probably become the women's lingerie department ... kinda fitting.
