The quest for dominance by San Francisco's two alternative weekly papers, Bruce Brugmann's Bay Guardian and the New Times-owned SF Weekly, has reached angry and almost comic levels, writes the Sacramento Bee's Herbert A. Sample, with a New Times editor calling Brugmann "bull-goose loony." Brugmann (photo right) says New Times has unfairly lowered rates in order to force him to sell ads at below cost, a charge the chain denies. Brugmann says the chain's execs don't like San Francisco and, "They don't really belong here."
