    Newspaper bane: Nobody reads the stories. Not even on-line, and nobody pays.

    " Once you take the movie times (Fandango) and the classified ads (Craigslist) out of the paper, you're pretty much left with news stories. (OK, and the comics.) And those news stories haven't changed much. [ ... ] said Lee Rainie, director of the Pew Internet Project, in an email. "So, even the most expert readers, trying to keep up with all the developments in their fields, are struggling to sort through the titles and abstracts of articles and figuring out which ones they should read from beginning to end."

    I read The Washington Times (owned by the Moonies) and my state and county newspapers of record - ON LINE. Beyond that, it's 'blogs of MY interests and correspondence with notables.

    Why do some folks continue to give free advertising to the print media. Let them go the way of the dinosaur so that we may get back to TVLand.

    Why do some folks continue to advertise television, let it go the way of pop-music so that we can get back to Letters of Correspondence.
