German FT slips into black
The Financial Times Deutschland closed yesterday - 12 years after it began. The journalists certainly marked the demise of their paper with style - and with a dark sense of humour. The front page went from pink to black with letters from the titlepiece tumbling to the foot of the page. The headline roughly translates as 'Finally black'. Inside there was a photograph of the staff bowing out (scroll to the foot of the page here).
