Writer's Block: Everything That's Fit to Print

The New York Times was first published on this day in 1851. How important is print news to you? Does the internet render circulation obsolete, or will print never die?

About the only reason I read print news anymore is for local news, the comics, and the editorials.

The first is a pain in the ass to find online, short of going to the local paper's site. And given how horribly badly the SNL's website is designed, I'd rather read the printed edition.

The second takes too long to find every site to get the current day's strip.

The third re-affirms my feeling of superiority towards the locals. Particularly when I have time to get to the local paper's website and read the comments. Seriously. The people who comment back on the stupidity that passes for a letter down here are often just as dumb as the original letter writer. I keep hoping that civil and rational discourse will prevail eventually, but most folks haven't figured out how not to feed the trolls.
