"The Star-Ledger of Newark Plans 40% Cut" -

Although Newark has its unique characteristics, especially in terms of the chronic problems of the city itself, I place a lot of stock in the NEWHOUSE family and their commitment to the newspaper business. When they are forced to make such cuts, it says a lot to me about how dire are the straits where newspapers generally find themselves today in so many places.

People and Their Press - Mt Alban, Nice

This fellow seemed so engrossed in reading today's paper that he barely paid any attention to me or the spectacular view from Mt Alban in Nice, not far from one of the homes of Sir Elton John.

Pop up using connection in France

I have found this to be a lot more useful than I at first expected. It is nice to be able to see the weather so handily; it just seems to work better than many of the other pages with weather on them.

People and Their Press

I am going to start posting some photos of how people interact with "their" press -- their newspaper or other printed publications. This fellow passed me on the quai in the Port of Nice, France, today, and I was struck by his finger-tip hold of the paper. I could not help but wonder if he had read anything yet, was savoring the thought of reading it soon, or hoping that not too much of the ink would come off on his fingers! It was only after I took the picture that I realized his walking, somewhat forlornly, off into the distance was so well matched with the speed limit there - 30. That is, indeed, the end of the story.
