Sometimes i miss being able to actually hold the news in my hands and get the ink on my fingers. I miss being able to read long passages without scrolling or having my eyes water from staring too long at a computer screen. I also love that newspaper has so many uses. You can wrap gifts with it, or use it to make paper mache projects. Or crumple it up and throw it at people. It makes me sad to think that the newspaper is on its way towards extinction.
Also, i really could have used a newspaper today to cover myself when a girl walked into the 2nd-floor unisex law-library bathroom i was using. My iphone just didn't cut it.
