I haven’t subscribed to a newspaper since college, when The New York Times basically gave itself away to me for free so it could hook me on the habit. It didn’t hook me on the habit of having an actual physical newspaper in hand each morning, but it did condition me to check its front page when big things go down, just to see what the font sizes and headlines-written-for-history are trying to tell me about relative momentousness.
Which is why, on days like today, I find myself going here. Maybe you’ve seen this already. Probably you have. But I can’t stop looking at it:
I love blogs, but they scroll and scroll and scroll, pushing huge happenings away within minutes, while front pages are forever.
