Hey, Newspaper…What Gives?
This is one of the more juvenile AND petty things I'm ever going to write about here. But I feel no shame. So I will proceed.
Can anyone give me a legitimate reason that News Paper publishers don't put staples in their newspapers? If not staples, SOMETHING. give me Something that will hold the damned thing together when the wind is blowing.
Is that too much to ask?
The oldest newspaper in America was first published in 1764. I can't be the first person that has wondered why in 245 years, we've not been able to come up with a better idea than several loose leaf pages that are chaotically placed within one another and folded.
It is IMPOSSIBLE to read a newspaper outside in South Texas. I want desperately to read one on my front porch, with a cup of coffee on a Sunday morning. But unfortunatley the flaws in the newspaper design don't allow for this.
Why do magazines have staples? Even classic yellow journalism, like the Grocery store tabloids have staples!!
I'm becoming angrier with each and word I type. It's all I can do not to write in all caps here!!!
This obviously will not be an issue for too much longer, because by my calculations, physical newspapers will be a thing of the past within two or three more years.
I haven't seen a lap top blow away in the wind. Just sayin'.
