Seattle P-I Globe will continue to spin

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer's decorative blue globe will continue to spin even after the 146-year-old paper prints its final edition Tuesday and goes Web-only.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer managing editor David McCumber said today the P-I's Web-only operation will stay in its current headquarters on the Seattle waterfront with the signature globe spinning overhead.

Questions about the P-I's fate spurred speculation over what would happen to the landmark globe, which measures 30 feet in diameter and weighs 18.5 tons.

Since 1948, the globe has broadcast its rotating motto, "It's in the P-I," against the Seattle skyline.

P-I publisher Roger Oglesby said the P-I still has a couple years left on its building lease.
