Good news: The WSJ is back to being a great business paper (for now)

I wasn't alone in complaining about the Wall Street Journal's decline in the quality and quantity of its business news articles. Thankfully, as Slate's Jack Shafer points out, the Journal has improved markedly in this area recently.

I'd point to this article on Dell's embrace of web2.0, this one on new business gurus (but no women) and this on municipal broadband as recent standouts. Each of which has reconfirmed why I like the paper. I've also noticed that the wonderfully silly page-1 articles (I still remember the 30-year-old one on Meat Loaf) have returned.
