There's a great Agatha Christie mystery called "A Murder Is Announced." Residents of a tiny English village are perusing their morning news papers over breakfast and scanning for gossip via the "lost and found," "for sale," and "wanted."
Upheaval erupts when a tiny advertisement space bears the words "A Murder Is Announced," complete with day, time, and location.
And the game is afoot.
I miss the days when everyone "took" the paper, or more often, multiple papers, daily. I like checking news online, and I appreciate the rapidity with which online news appears.
But I really enjoy the printed ink on news paper.
I like to have my cake and eat it too.
I hope you still subscribe to the daily newspaper: it's worth it. You can recycle it when you're done, but even if you don't, I think you'll enjoy it.
In the mean time, here are a few links to interesting stories around the web. So far, I haven't found any murders announced.
