    I was just thinking today that soon there won’t be any newspaper to use for the many things we’ve always used it for. I wonder, too, when plastic bags are banned, what dog walkers will use to pick up dog droppings.

      Excellent observation, Janet. The Law of Unintended Consequences at work.

    Great blast from the past, Allan. Interesting to hear what up-to-the-minute news meant back then. And I love all the eyes.

      Thanks, Jet. You got me thinking and I looked up what a $6.00/year subscription would be in today’s money: $118.22. There were some serious readers back in the day.
