If you drop by U-T San Diego's offices in Mission Valley, you'll find the usual newsroom, printing press and proverbial ink-stained wretches along with a little something extra. Visitors can eat at a restaurant, admire signed limited-edition prints by the likes of Picasso and Dali, and visit a small "auto museum" showcasing Shelby Cobras, a Woodie and more.
These are all part of the grand vision of publisher and owner Doug
Manchester, who's been dramatically remodeling the U-T building while
brashly pushing his political agenda on the front page of the newspaper.
