End of an era
For the first time in nearly 40 years there was no newspaper waiting for me at the curb. It wasn’t because the paper wasn’t delivered, but rather because we’ve gone totally digital.
Yes, just 2 few years ago, I was getting 4 newspapers — the Washington Post, NYT, WSJ, and USA Today — delivered daily.
But, everything’s online now, and with the advent of the Ipad, I can read in leisure whenever and wherever I want. In fact, many of the papers have Ipad specific apps, so I don’t even need to go to their online site. (although it’s often better than the app.)
Of course, the dogs still haven’t learned to do their duty “online” so my morning ritual hasn’t changed all that much. But, I certainly don’t miss all that newsprint coming into the house.
