    I don't think newspapers need to exist anymore. They're a waste of paper.

    I love the enjoyment of reading big weekend newspapers....you can savor and relish the tangible experience..

    Just like real books......I'll take a real book over reading an electronic book on a screen anyday.

    There's something about real newspapers and books that

    electronica does not replicate.......

    Often, I find that today's newspaper is outdated. The "news" is usually 2 days old.

    I read my paper every day, I really do not want to wake up to a backlit screen.

    If people stop consuming paper, tree farms go the way of the dinosaur, so we get less trees. A paper industry is not the worst thing in the world, people's negligence in recycling is the bigger problem. Plus, newspaper works better than anything else when cleaning glass ;)

    I keep the screen brightness way down and always read with plenty of good lighting, but still a valid point about the trees.
