A Midtown-based media operative reports on a frightening state of affairs: It's Wednesday, and the New York Observer is nowhere to be found! Could this have anything to do with Monday's website relaunch? Is Jared Kushner trying to tell us something? In any case, our tipster says that the newsstand on 43rd and 7th said the paper would come "maybe tomorrow," though the newsstand in the Conde Nast Building was confident it would arrive "later this afternoon." (In Penn Station, we can personally report, this week's paper is totally MIA, and the paper-selling ladies did not give a damn.) As our tipster says, "They all said it just didn't come." Now that would be a 21st century newspaper!
