What will journalists do after newspapers finally fold? Many things. Starting their own PR companies will be big. Writing for online internt weblog sites will tempt many. (Most, however, will fail to grasp the simple difference between the two mediums.) And some, well, will have to start small business ventures.

But a distinct few will take a stab at running for public office--Northern California's version of writing a screenplay. Take, for example, former Examiner Editor Adriel Hampton. He plans to run for Congress. How do we know this? Because he spammed SFist to beg for a regular column about his run for Congress. (Please don't do that, candidates. Just email us personally. Grumble.)
