Cliff Note: I will get back to my regular posting tomorrow. I will be taking a vacation day tomorrow as my wife wants me to go to her doctor's appointment with her.
I saw on line and saw on television that the Seattle Post-Intelligencer is going to digital only after today. The daily paper in the major metrolpolitan areas is becoming an endangered species. With all the television news outlets and the internet, by the time you read it in the latest newspaper, it's history.
With the ability to post free classified ads online, the necessity for that service is declining.
The daily paper is needed for less and less. I still like to read the funnies but I can also get that online.
Letters to the editor? This is where blogs come in handy. Besides, most areas have a weekly paper for that and other services.
Seeing that I can't take my laptop everywhere and get access to the web, newspapers won't become entirely extinct any time soon, but they will not exist as we have come to know them.
