The Internet is a wonderful invention. It allows us to be able to access all sorts of information from our computers often for free. Indeed, this blog would not be possible if it wasn't for the web.
As cool as online media access is, it is important to remember that the stories cited in this blog were for the most part originally published in newspapers. Without newspapers and their reporters, it would not be possible to obtain reliable information about most events.
Newspapers today are in financial trouble partly because too many people get all their news online and do not bother to pick up a real newspaper. I make it a point to buy several hardcopy newspapers each day.
Please keep the tradition alive. Purchace a subscription to your home town paper or buy a copy at a newstand or honor box every day. The cost is small, and you will be supporting a home-town institution.
