death of newspapers http://hppr.org en Well Read Garden http://hppr.org/post/well-read-garden <p></p><p>The newscasts seem full of stories about the death of newsprint, and newsprint's replacement by technology.&nbsp; There seems to be fewer and fewer of us who carry the genes of string-savers of the Great Depression- those who love the way the paper feels between our fingers, and the way the pages sound as we turn them.&nbsp; There's a steady flow of the electronic version of the town crier- folks on little screens who type, text, or shout, gossip, advertising, facts, figures, and advertisements, even when we don't want them.</p> Thu, 21 Mar 2013 05:01:00 +0000 Skip Mancini 13737 at http://hppr.org Well Read Garden
