We media critics are a cynical lot, convinced that newspapers are going to die and television will be replaced by implantable microchips in the back of people’s retinas.
So it’s nice to be reminded of the one thing that Old Media does do well: Forced Variety. In a piece that this Fishie contributed to for the Orange County Register, readers can see how people of all walks of life respond to world events differently. It’s perhaps unfortunate that said world event is the Britney/Ex-Fed divorce, but still… where else, other than a newspaper can you read the collected musings of a 60+ dating columnnist, a “Baby Boomer” reporter, and a real estate “guru?”
Aside, of course, from here.
