About a year ago I gave up newspapers. Too bulky, a waste of paper, and I got all the news I could digest from the internet. I love the way I can skim through articles on my smartphone. .. it's efficient and easy to access. But on a recent getaway to a sunny spot in California, I was reintroduced to The Paper. And it's better. .. lots better.
In the wake of dwindling circulation, the LA Times has retooled, with a narrower, easy to handle format, a clean layout, and what's seems to be. .. fewer ads? In other words, it's fantastic. And so I did something i swore I'd never do. I resubscribed.
Maybe, just maybe... the tactile experience of the morning paper isn't dead. Plus, now if I ever need to wrap a fish, I've got something to wrap it in.
