    I would miss having the newspaper if I didn’t have it any more. But I don’t think I would miss not having it.

    How about missing it getting soaked in the rain or a puddle without being in a plastic bag?

    Apparently they’re not missing reading it.

    “But February made me shiver
    With every paper I’d deliver
    Bad news on the doorstep
    I couldn’t take one more step”

    In February, McLean stated publicly that he would reveal the meaning of the lyrics to “American Pie” when the original manuscript goes for auction in New York City next month.

    Maybe they’re missing not reading it.

    Living in a condo these days, I sometimes miss my front porch. But not as often as the paperboy always did.

    Wait, I just noticed. Opal starts today’s strip by saying she misses not having the paper. Does that mean she used to not have it, but now that she does have it, she misses the days when she didn’t?

    I don’t miss not getting the paper in time to take it to work with me.

    People “miss not doing” (or having, etc.) things when they don’t know how to talk properly. It’s like “I could care less,” or “I didn’t do nothing.”

    Not quite the same with a tablet, or IPhone.

    “I miss not being on fire” would be something someone on fire would say. By missing not having the paper means that she is presently getting the newspaper every morning but now she misses the time she didn’t get it.

    The newspaper is in the roses because he didn’t tip the delivery person at Christmas. One of life’s simple pleasures is reading the Sunday newspaper.

    No, not quite the same — which means a lot more typos (which people obviously don’t bother to re-read, edit,
    or correct.)

    Which, again, proves my theory that people don’t really hear what they’re saying. Kinda’ like “I could care less,” which actually means “I care somewhat.” (which does not mean what they think they think they mean.)
    I rest my case.
