Newspapers will be a thing of the past in a few years, and they should be. There is no need to waste all the trees that are used in them. When I was younger and there was no internet, I would read the sports page and local news every single day. But now with the net, I can get sports and other news from so many different angles. And it is much easier to read. In March 2007, the paper reported a circulation of roughly 1,120,420 copies on weekdays and 1,627,062 copies on Sundays. That is a LOT of trees. Online subscriptions are the way to go. The New York Times puts a liberal slant on most of their articles, yet they are allowed to state them as facts without anyone questioning them. They have falsely (depending on your outlook) swayed many elections and other votes. I say good riddance.

Then what would ppl with birds line their cages with Brad lol?




The other thing the net is hurting is the USPS. Nothing cheaper or quicker than a fax.

That's not true Paul. Commercial mailings, bills, cards and advertisements, aka junk mail, are at an all time high. And the loss of personal letters has been more than made up by people ordering things off of the internet and sending boxes and mailer pouches via USPS. They also still handle 46% of the world's card and letter mail volume. Their first class mail service is pretty much a monopoly. People tend to forget that the Post Office was originally meant to be a self supporting not-for-profit service to the people. Over the years it has progressed into a highly profitable organization but they still do not receive any tax dollars from the government and are solely funded by postage and products.

First-Class Mail $37.6 billion
Business Advertising $20.8 billion
Expedited Mail $6.2 billion
Publications $2.2 billion
Package Services $2.3 billion
International Mail $2.0 billion

Fuel, salary and truck purchasing/repair increases. When fuel costs increase one cent, USPS's costs increase over $8 million a year. Seeing as how gas prices have increased over a dollar lately, that comes out to almost a billion dollars. 42 cents to send a letter anywhere in the country is still one the most incredible bargains there is...

The way everyone is doing business nowadays, the USPS and other carriers will have the time of their life. The internet makes it easy to shop from across the country and across continents:-)

I agree Paul! And we all can tear off those labels from our mattresses!

When the end of the world comes, here in Hawaii will be 2 hours behind the West Coast. So I'll be watching all of your worlds coming to an end first on satellite tv! lol
