Katie Allison Granju writes about how newspapers have shaped her life. As the third generation of a family of journalists, she tells the tale.

I still believe in real journalism. The business model that built the newspapers shutting down today will no longer support that kind of journalism, and the new model isn’t completely clear yet. But despite the scary times in this industry, I remain a true believer. The great journalists of tomorrow will work online, not in newsprint, but they will be here, and they will matter just as much to our democracy as the great print bylines of yesterday mattered.

But I will always miss the smell of newsprint.
