The Journal is to end its 18-month experiment of selling the US edition on London newstands. The project was rolled out in April 2008, with a 3,500-copy print run allowing British readers to scoop the day's paper ahead of their American cousins; given what happened later in the year it looked an astute move, allowing us Limeys to digest reports of international capitalism's near-demise before Manhattan chefs had even sliced the day's first bagel. But the Journal is instead going to focus efforts on a revised European edition of the paper, which launches on November 17th.
