(From our Email May 16, 2011.)

We’re pleased to report that Amazon.com’s Web Information Company, Alexa.com, has ranked KansasProgress.com at 72,636 among US Web sites.

On Thursday, Times executives told representatives from the Boston paper’s 13 unions that they must trim $20 million from their budgets by May 1 or the Times would shut the paper down.
