Stuever on alt-weeklies: They're still good, a lot of them

Washington Post TV critic Hank Stuever, who has read alternative weeklies since he was a teen, says they're still the easiest way to find out what to do or what’s going on in a city. "I can glean more in 5 minutes of flipping through [Washington] City Paper than I can in 25 or 30 minutes of purposeful web surfing of local sites. The web can’t replicate it, though I’m sure anyone under 35 will be happy to prove otherwise."
