I understand that the goodwill of the Salon.com name still carries some weight, so I offer you the following - I will buy the name, URL and all rights therein to "open.salon.com" as well as all URL within its heirarchy for the lofty sum of $20.
It's an offer which represents 4X the site's total value, and is more than generous, I think. After the purchase is complete, I will show you and the management at Salon exactly what you could have done to make this site successful, and when the value has eclipsed $25,000, should you be interested in repurchase, I will sell the site back to you at its actual value, with no premium like I am now offering you.
It's a pretty sweet deal. Take it to whomever you need to take it and get back to me. Or, have your people call my people and we'll do lunch.
