It seems like everytime I eat out, and see, or buy something in the store, it has shrunk or been "downsized"! My local paper has been included, I think a couple of times! The size is so small now that if they cut it anymore I'll have to use a magnifying glass to read the print!! Really! We counted the pages of the TN Sunday newspaper (not including comics,ads etc., but the main "news" pages) and out of a 14 page spread we (hubby and I) found that ads were interspersed among 10 1/2 of those pages with 3 of those pages having FULL ads! Leaving of course if you are doing your math, 3 1/2 pages for ALL of our local news in the county! (and mind you, it's not really a small county!)
I realize that a lot of people have given up the "physical" paper for the internet version, but,come on, 3 NEWS pages!
I'd love to know how your local papers are!
