How can newspapers survive the web
We don't have to be in love with a product, I just feel that we are becoming to sterile, and that our kids are getting the wrong messages. I think that one of the big issues is the fact that our society is also becoming desensitized. If I had it my way for instance, I would take computers out of every school and return to books and the good ole black board. We truly are dumbing down america, People are attracted to snippets of information which is going to cause a myriad of problems; for instance people already or "Know It Alls" What do you think is happening as a result of four line knowledge." The Answer: Negligence: Misinformation: etc... I work with younger people as my assistants, and I make them do my research the old fashioned way, let me tell you if you want to see a pissed off teen or young adult, force them to use their grey matter. :) These youth are unable to solve basic reasoning problems, and anything requiring them to problem solve. What will the results of such lead... So you see there are many reasons for wanting to keep certain past time events and products alive. Thats All. Den.

I have been saying this to people for quite some time. I have friends iwho like the paper. I buy all the papers when I go to the stands or market, from the wall street journal, Ny Times, Boston, Providence, because (I know I am a freak) I happen to like the smell of them, and honestly they are comforting in some odd and peculiar way. As one of the countries esteemed and respected Abstract Impressionists; I would certainly give the reader some value like provide limited edition Art Prints that will accrue value over time like (Rockwells- Evening Edition Prints) Hell I have characters that would hook any consumer as they are appealing. I also would hold art contests. Ad a section for our youth to write about many topics. These are a couple and I am afraid if you want anymore you will have to put me under contract. But. I will always buy them even though I have been bad about reading them, My assistants are always trying to throw them out.I don't know why they ever stopped the newspaper drives that they had when i was a kid, they were great and I would volunteer at the truck; They would pull up these huge trucks and have people come down with all of their News Papers and magazines and load them into the trucks after bundling them. They were then given to local businesses for packaging and wrapping glassware and other fragile consumer goods. So this was like35 years ago you would think they would still do these paper drives. I think the papers should hold them and repulp the paper. Well Thats all for now. There are always options.

Hello. I picked you comment to piggyback being after reading some of the more ignorant "Typical" ones I would just be very rude in reply. Lets look at it like this, same as books. You will never replace the smell and feel of a good book , or by chance happen upon something that (God Forbid) may make you smile! I find it not only shaming, but scarey that people are so easy and willing to give up rituals; I remember that part of the morning ritual, especially weekends involved getting up and getting the paper for gramps or dads across america, sitting at the table for breakfast(We gave that up to) waiting for the comics to read Snoopy or Garfield etc...The paper held more value than just news, try to replace that with your ipad. People make me sick at times with this quick dismissal attitude, no wonder the country is fu---!. I will opt for the feel, smell and quality time benefits over any of the nonsense opined here.
