I can say with conviction that no matter WHAT device or contrivance comes along to bolster this internet juggernaut, there should ALWAYS be room for the "tangible", and that being newspapers.

A shame that many papers rely less on good reporters (and the reporting they are capable of) and more on how "nice" their website is. Mever held a newspaper yet that wasn't "user-friendly".

It goes beyond the ads...beyond the opinions...and even beyond good journalism.

It's about holding the news in your hand...and with it, a sense of belief, instead of all this virtual gratification.

Not to mention, it does well under the litter pan (but that's only for the classified and sports sections).
