We are all witnessing the changing times and every day something new comes along. Today the Ann Arbor News announced that it will no longer be publishing a daily paper after July and I am sorry to see it go. There are employees who will move with the new on line source and will protect their jobs, but there are many more in production and delivery that will not be so lucky.
As much as we like to complain about our local paper, it is still an institution. Which one of us doesn't remember the image of Dad coming home and sitting down to relax with the newspaper before dinner? Yes, it might have been Mom from work and ourselves as well, but it is an image which will no longer be viable in Ann Arbor. The paper boys and girls must find new sources for a bit of after work and income.
When it comes to the news we undoubtedly will search on GoogleNews and Twitter but I can't help wondering about the folks, who don't have Internet at home. It is not often that this is the case, but what about these folks? How will they get the news? The only source will be the television? That would be a travesty!
Again, I wish all the employees of The Ann Arbor News the best with all of these changes and I'm sure your world is rocked today.
