Rumpled, wet, and casually littering the parking lot, these pages from a newspaper escaped the purpose for which they were printed! Despite recycling efforts, one sometimes wonders about the meaning of this once valued source of information. So much of the newspaper has been colored with advertising, that it is difficult to find content to read. Online versions, other internet resources, television, and even social networking sites seem to provide the news more efficiently and with just as much accuracy as the newspaper industry - but some newspapers still survive...hanging just by a thread...can't imagine that it can last long though. 5th Ave S & West Lake Dr, Naples, FL


  1. When I want to read in depth I still prefer something in my hands. That said, our local English paper has very little depth - I'm better off with the internet!

  2. I take our local paper out of the letter box and put it straight into the bin. I'm not going to waste my time reading about somebody's cat up in a tree, as heart-wrenching as it may be. I wouldn't mind the paper-version of the paper, but it's so clumsy! I feel like Fred Flintstone trying to turn pages. Then the house is full of paper! Online's good for me.
