Hot Off The Digital Press

Newspapers are taking it in the shorts.  Labor costs and dwindling readership are two main culprits affecting the bottom line.  Readership is shifting to cell phones and computers, away from paper.  I've sold my newspaper stock long ago.

Not even the book is sacred anymore.  Amazon.com is selling the Kindle, a take-it-with-you book.

Maybe the newspapers ought to release an electronic version for their reporting, and eliminate the paper.

Oh right, they already do that.

Maybe they ought to start blogging instead of producing a paper product.

Oh right, they already do that.

Maybe they ought to catch up with the times.  No, not THE Times, but the electronic times.

Advertisers on the Internet stay around a lot longer than my newspaper does.

Oh right.  I don't get a newspaper delivered anymore. 

But I do have several computers.

Obviously.
