Today, we have some bittersweet news for you loyal Village14 readers. This morning Village 14 was sold, for an undisclosed sum, to the media company The Onion Inc. The new management wants to assure the readers that the blog they love will stay exactly the same, except for its new name – The Newton Onion.
The only other change is that Village14 founder Greg Reibman will no longer be contributing to the blog going forward. He came out of the meeting with the new management this morning, with a suitcase full of cash, and a big smile on his face. Said Greg, “I would like to keep contributing to the blog but I know as soon as I move to my new villa in the Carribean, I’m going to quickly lose any interest in Newton.
We do wish him well …. no, really
