Some speculate that the newspaper is doomed, but Zukowski’s Law is that nothing ever goes away completely. TV did not replace radio, just changed it. Same with movies in theaters — cable and DVDs haven’t killed that. We still have horses, too, although not often on Main Street.
I will always want my morning news in a portable form, although I’m not wedded to newsprint. A nice light reader with adequate picture capability, maybe even color, could replace all but the Sunday paper with all its circulars.
