Maariv's predictable surprise ending
The paper's downfall is another crack in the truly disturbing disintegration of our democratic state institutions.
There is something surprising about Maariv's collapse. Any sensible person knows that it's been a "dead man walking" for many years. Nevertheless, when the end actually arrives … surprise and shock. Two thousand people will be sent home, some without compensation. Soon, the paper will stop running. And we thought it would be here forever.
