Here is June 1, 1945
Here is May 18,2009
which kind of surprise me as isn't this the anniversary of Mt. St. Helens's blow?
Ok, here they are side by side, can you tell? No, it isn't the color...
And no, it isn't because the newer one is thinner, (I was surprised by how much)
Ok, now I have folded them... look, can you see the difference now?? just looking at the
top of the pages?
The difference that sadden me was the amount of news. Looking at the bottom one you
can count 9 different stories... the newer one? 2 not counting the promo on top.
There is 4 inches just for the headline. Guess there isn't much news today.
It is the same story inside... column after column of news...
Second had 17 articles of news...and a quarter of the page was ads in
the old one. The new one, had 2 and the rest of weather. half a page of
weather. Local, national and world weather.
Back page had 13 pictures of mostly to do with funerals of our
service men. From France to USA, pictures of the dead and etc.
It is after Memorial Day.
New one had one article and 3 continue articles and 1/4 ads.
