The news is not the same as reading the Newspapers...

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Leading Edge

I took a sabbatical from Newspapers and picked up my News from Internet and my iPAD apps for a few months.

But I have decided it just is not the same.

I totally enjoy taking time to browse through a week of newspapers on a Sunday morning.

It is the small stories and the educational pieces that catch my attention.

You just miss all the good stuff on the computer.

I read in the Washington Post about a man who was so far ahead of himself that he was seen as a kook in his Government job. But as time caught up to him his inventions were revealed to be true genius. I read about Internet Explorer updating and Firefox, too. I clipped the coupons and marked up the sale brochures. There's buy one get one FREE Strawberries at Safeway the next few days. I chucked at the cartoon in the front of the Washington Post Comics whose Author MUST be tagging along after my Nephew  and doing a character sketch each week.

It is worth hauling the papers to the Dump. It is worth the stack each day.

I like to learn, clip, laugh, and savor the good old fashioned Newspaper. With my iPAD at my side, of course.

Cheryl -- for me, I read newspapers from other areas online but locally still receive newspapers.  As for disposal ---  recycle those newspapers.

As long as print has been around it will be here for a while. They have had to tighten their belts and once online papers catch on and fee is charged to read a lot of people will go back to reading the Sunday paper.

Cheryl, my wife gets all her news from the net.  I read the entire paper every day.  And, if I miss a day or two, it takes forever to get caught up.  But, as you say, it is worth it.

Books are the next on the extinction list. Too bad.

We have a daily paper here in Annapolis and I love to stop my day, grab a cup of coffee and browse thru the paper each day. It is the transistion for me from run run run to stop and relax a bit. I hope the newspapers never disappears.
