    A newspaper was that thing your grandparents used to line the bird cage with.

    As I’m getting older I am witnessing the gradual extermination of many things I held dear; Newspapers, Book Stores, Record Shops and even things like telephone booths and mailboxes. Other than at the Post Office, I can’t find a mailbox anywhere near my house; my newspaper is 1/2 the size it was 10 years ago; and after dinner out or a movie it was always fun to stop by a book store or record store and browse, but no more.
    I realize that time and progress should always move forward, but I do miss some of these things for they were happy parts of my younger days.
    Thirty years from now today’s young people will be missing their smart phones and tablets as they, too, will have been surpassed.

    Perhaps if the newspapers were full of actual important news, we’d read them. I don’t care what “celeb A” is doing to “celeb B”. I don’t want speculation, opinion, pictures of boobs or sport. I want information, facts, cartoons etc.

    From digits to digital. It’s interesting that the cartoonist is bemoaning the decline of newspapers when the cartoonist is presented on the internet. I use the internet, but there is something magical about pen and paper.

    @kfp159

    Is that Whiskers or is that the famous “Hang In There. Friday’s Coming” poster?

    and “news” on TV is even worse. It might as well be an extended version of Inside Hollywood

    @dbig 1oohh

    And yet the most recent generations are seeing that they will have less than their parents had. Fewer choices, less money and eventually less gadgets.

    I never really liked Doonesbury that much. I guess my tastes were simpler.

    in the early days doonesbury wasn’t bad, stateist yes, but still had some humanity and heart (can’t believe I’m saying this) recall the stirp he did at xmas time durning watergate, he actually did a strip with Nixon where he was a human being and father, or the one where the woman struggled to put a name to her relationship with the man she was sleeping with as she introduced him to her boss.
    but to many papers have posined the well with their readers to where they question why they would pay for rewriten press releases. (full discloser, i worked in newspapers (small town) back in the 70’s)

    Unfortunately he’s just like all other children. Except a few.
