    Computers may seem to have it all but there is nothing like taking the newspaper funnies into the bathroom with you to do your business. I miss that.

    Is the rare antiquity the comics page or that kids are reading?

    I remember in the 1950s and ’60s when Sunday comics took up to a half-page per strip, with a full page for Prince Valiant.

    This makes it all the more painful that the Philadelphia Inquirer recently dropped its separate Sunday comics section by shrinking it into the back pages of the tabloid-sized TV listing section. Sad.

    I just became a first time subscriber to our city newspaper. They had lowered the rates to like half price. I even got a 10.00 gift for it too. I hope it lasts.

    Even without all the newspapers going bust, the paperboy is a thing of the past.

    These days newspapers are delivered by adults in station-wagon and minivans…at least around here.

    Hm, I can’t actually type in the comment box, but I can cut and paste text into it. Weird.   Anyway, I was going to say that I turn 28 later this week, and, growing up in the ’80s watching old TV shows on cable, I always wanted to deliver the paper when I got old enough. However, in my lifetime, the paper has always been delivered by adults in cars. I remember reaching the age of 10 or 11 and finding out that you had to be 18 and have a driver’s license to deliver the paper and being seriously disappointed.

    pschearer - the Philly Inquirer did that? How sad. I always loved their comic section back when I lived up there.

    Times they are a-changin’ - sometimes I have to wonder if it’s for the better.

    something kids of today will not experience is using silly putty to make a color transfer of the comics

    Sitting here, reading these comics on my computer; thinking of how some adults have been trying to stretch their incomes by getting up at 3 in the morning to get in their vans to deliver papers…

    To Bald - my brothers and I used to do the Silly Putty trick. The best was stretching all the characters into new shapes. Ha ha!
