I KNEW THE LOSS WAS SERIOUS WHEN I SAW THE NEWSPAPER JUNK THEIR OLD PRINTING PRESSES. Seeing it myself made it real. Ripped the heart right out of that building and that paper. It's not why newspapers are dying but it is one reason why they die largely unmourned. I'm pushing back. Typewriters, Dial Telephones, Hand Tools, Old Amateur Radio Gear, Telegraph Keys, Analog Volt Ohmmeters, Vacuumatic Coffeemakers, Slide Rules, Fountain Pens, etc.: I have 'em. I use 'em.
