Left for dead in a bankruptcy last November, the Washington Blade has come roaring back just in time for Gay Pride Month in June. "Things are going very well," says Editor Kevin Naff. "We've never had more readers." The paper and website, now locally owned, haven't changed since getting suspended. The Blade still covers national and local gay issues, like the "don't ask, don't tell" law. "We celebrated our 40th anniversary last year and are most certainly here to stay," says Naff. Another troubled D.C. paper is also on the rebound. Insiders say the conservative Washington Times is reconsidering plans to sell after stabilizing its balance sheet.
