No more holiday papers?

It's an idea CEO Mary Junck mentioned in an Editor & Publisher story:

Lee Enterprises CEO Mary Junck told the Cribb Greene Report, "There was a time when no one published on holidays. Maybe we should go back to that concept. We're considering the idea now." Eliminating some sections on certain days of the week — or even dropping entire Monday or Tuesday editions — are other ideas she might consider.

Just remember: You still wouldn't get the holiday off, just the day before the holiday. (Although dropping the Monday paper would give everyone Sunday off.) Thoughts?
