UPDATE: Just in case anyone missed it in the Inquirer and philly.com today, freebie newspaper Metro Philadelphia says it'll be back tomorrow, after a weeklong publication break. Andy Maykuth's Inquirer story here.
YESTERDAY: Metro Philadelphia boxes were empty today as the free "daily" tabloid newspaper failed to return from the July 4 weekend. Joins the Evening Bulletin on the newly-disappeared minor-dailies list (tho Bulletin publisher Tom Rice is still trying to resurrect it). Employees say Metro is supposed to return Thursday July 9 after an extended vacation. Website hasn't been updated this week. Publisher Eric Mayberry left earlier this year and hasn't been replaced.
