technology sucks. I hate it. Everything I need was invented before I was born. And what has it really done for us? Made us fatter, lazier, weaker, and freakier, even less human. If we were smart, we'd say out with the new, back to the old, which worked better. The only thing I hate more than Change is Hope.

I stopped buying newspapers the day I got an Internet connection, and never looked back. I get what you old school guys are saying, I mean, me too back in the day used to start the day off with a copy of the USA Today and Times Picayune. Very happy to have the Internet which is more up to date, and no newspapers piled up around the house! I used to also be a magazine freak, no more of that too since I got an Internet connection. So basically, I do feel bad that folks at the Times Picayune are losing their jobs, but at the same time the printed newspaper business is a business that is seriously outdated.

Guess you might be on to something, maybe! DJ'ing has got to be much easier with all of the digital storage capabilities, not to mention all of the software now available on a multitude of platforms (MAC, IPad, Windows,etc...).

I am not sure I would read anything in a sauna or steamroom. Besides, no need for one of those in the deep south. I was in Borger TX last week where it was 108. Houston's humidity is plenty good too!

LMAO!!! Good riddance. The world just took a step in right direction.
The internet works better for them anyway. Faster, more biased information sent directly to the phones of our most impressionable citizens - our youth.

Don't get me started.

I am older sort of hate to see this go. I do not get the paper delivered anymore because I work so early I can't get to it. So people like me are the reason for the failure (And of course Katrina which decimated the population). I do try and stop and get one on my way to work. I am not so sure this paper was so liberal just my view. Times have changes but I used to really enjoy my coffee and paper in the morning. For me the computer just is not the same.

naa...it just costs more, and has more ways to fail than the good ol' cd's. Besides, I dont know a thing about software. Im too busy to learn how to operate all these new toys, which change every 3 months.
