Thank you so much for coming on this brief journey with me down memory lane. Newspapers are a dying breed and it seems to be that every other day another long-time rag is shutting down. I will most likely write more about this topic in the future but for now our series is coming to an end.
Newspaper ink played a big role in my life growing up which is funny considering I was born right around the same time the internet was being discovered. It's amazing to me to look back and see how far we came since the days of paper and ink at 5 a.m.
Whether you get your news from the paper, the radio, the television, or the internet, the options are nearly limitless. I can't wait to see what the next great mass communication invention is! Maybe I'll even take the time to read about it in one of the few newspapers that are left.
