    Dying Newspaper Trend Buys Nation's Newspapers Three More Weeks

    WASHINGTON—A recent glut of feature stories on the death of the American newspaper has temporarily made the outmoded form of media appealing enough to stave off its inevitable demise for an additional 21 days, sources reported Monday. "People really seem to identify with these moving, 'end-of-an-era'-type pieces," Washington Post editor-in-chief Leonard Downie, Jr. said. "It's nice to see that the printed word is still, at least for now, the most powerful medium for reporting on the death of the printed word." Downie added that the poignant farewell Op-Ed he recently penned was so well received that he will be able to hold onto his job for up to six more days.

    BTW -- for the handful of you oh-so-clever people (you know who you are) who are about to pounce and point out that this has already been posted, I don't care. I didn't bother to check, so it very well might have been. Too bad! :p

    Welcome back, dear 'Toum.
    Why poke fun at shortcomings?
    Must you be so cruel?

    No one will poke fun
    Everyone loves your returns
    It's a circle jerk

    Returns? Never left.
    Oft lurking, rarely posting.
    A life, I have found.
