  Back in Action


After changing ownership and then its name, the Washington Blade is back to its old self.

The newspaper had been covering D.C. news and national politics for more than four decades when its owner, Window Media, went bankrupt in November 2009. About a dozen employees volunteered their services to continue the paper; they were back in action in a matter of days and they renamed their venture D.C. Agenda. A year ago the employees -- thanks to many donations from fans -- bought back the Blade's assets from bankruptcy. The name returned to the Washington Blade, and now the paper is relaunching Friday with a new logo, design, website, and smartphone app.

"To the objection of my accountant, because we're trying to overcome the bankruptcy stigma, we're operating on a cash basis," publisher Lynne Brown told The Wall Street Journal. "I am still bullish on the Blade."
