The former editor of the Washington Blade says the newspaper will publish a revived edition this week. Kevin Naff is the former editor of the Blade. He says he and his staff are determined to publish a print and online edition this Friday.

The Blade was the oldest newspaper in the country for gays and lesbians and had just celebrated its 40th anniversary. It was abruptly closed Monday by Window Media, along with other gay publications in Atlanta and Miami.

Naff says he can't reveal the new publication's name as yet and says it will be "modest."

"It's not going to be 100 pages of newsprint it might be four pages of something copied at Kinko's but something will be out on the streets and we will grow it from there."

Naff says they will try to find out why two offers from prospective publishers to buy the Blade were not accepted earlier this year.
