In 1963, New York City had more than eleven (11) newspapers, morning and late editions.
Back then I had a part-time job that included reading all these papers, reviewing articles of interest and writing synopses for an oft out-of-town mogul who didn't read quickly or well.
It paid well and helped me get through school and life.
Now with 3 major newspapers left in the Apple, it seems that not only the Globe, but the New York Times and my local newspaper are in peril.
I am one of those old fashioned readers.
I prefer print.
I scoff when folks want me to go paperless.
And I have to squint too much to enjoy on line reading.
I was in heaven when I was able to read both the New York Times* magazine section and the book review section in Pittsburgh last weekend. I liked it so much I took the two sections home--to fondle.
*The New York Times does not deliver to my local area.
