Poor Ink-Stained Wretches

From the cranium of Jack Lail:

But the letters published last night by the Wall Street Journal in response to the column show that quite a few of the people that read or used to read newspapers just don’t care about the fate of newspapers and just might be knowingly smiling at the prospect of their demise.

I do know a goodly number of people who would miss their newspaper if it failed to show up in the paper tube or driveway — or online — so it’s just not us poor ink-stained wretches who would miss them.

I would miss them for a variety of reasons. A.) In the spirit of disclosure, I’m paid by a newspaper. B.) I like having ink on my fingers after diving into the Sunday edition of the newspaper. C.) I think that newspapers should be marketed as retro goodness right now. It would give them an edge for trendy hipsters.

Heh. Sometimes I crack myself up.
