    If it’s one of those papers where Doonesbury IS on the Editorial page, with Mallard Fallmore, as in our paper, just give her the comics & keep the editorial section.

    Better keep her away from the interwebs as well. Especially

    Now he should show her the real reason to buy a newspaper; it makes a great lining for the bottom of a birdcage. I’d like to see you do that with an iPad or a Kindle.

    ^You could, but it’d get kinda expensive!

    Is this the fourth wall or fifth wall breaking?

    More post-modernism. Ho-hum.

    Like to see yo do a crossword on an ipad…. I love getting the newspaper. Go to the internet for comics they don’t carry, and news from other countries for a more rounded perspective. And yes, for breaking news as well. But there is nothing like sitting down with the paper!

    I love the newspaper and used to get the local daily - till they stopped delivering and kept charging. Never did get that resolved and finally gave up. But still get the local weekly.

    I’m guessing Mike didn’t pay for the premium service offered on sunday?

    I admit, I like the classified ads of our local underground paper. How many different ways can YOU say, “Woman looking for man. And woman.”

    Comics? In the newspapers? Sounds far fetched..I mean, how do you post comments in a newspaper? Duh!

    I didn’t say a word when they made the paper narrower, I held my piece when they combined Nation with World. I kept quiet when Opinions and Letters to our Editors were squeezed on a smaller page BUT SUNDAY they finished the final distruction of my local Rag. Two pages of comics disappeared! They had made the comics smaller, cut the opening panels, sneaked furniture ads in, but Sunday I picked up the opening page and that was it. Shook it. No middle comic pages. And they kept Mary Worth!

    I might as well subscribe to the NYT who have never had a sense of humor but a great fiction section titled News. They don’t have comics cause they lose something in translation from Russian.

    As comics are lost from newspapers, paychecks are lost. Paychecks might be a small part of the reason our favorite cartoonists work so hard. GoComics could become all reruns.Buy a paper. Read the comics last. They help take the sour taste out of the news.

    The newspaper was worth the price when Prince Valiant was half a page by itself. For me at the time it was the only part worth reading. When they cut it down in size of the others and didn’t care how the artwork looked I was a disallusioned child.

    Never understood why newspapers ended up treating the comics so shabbily. Did they want to believe that the comics somehow weren’t the #1 reason people bought the paper?
