    File this one in the rapidly growing "changing times" folder:

    It’s no secret that as they struggle financially, newspapers and magazines are doing some radical cost-cutting, like abandoning paper for a purely digital future.

    So it makes sense that the same would apply to a magazine about newspapers, supported by newspapers.

    That isn't the ironic.

    This part, however …<blockquote><b>Last week, subscribers to Presstime, the monthly magazine of the Newspaper Association of America, received, along with the new issue, a letter informing them that it was the last hard copy they would see. Presstime, its staff already much reduced, will continue on <a href="http://www.naa.org" title="The Newspaper Association of America’s Web site.">the association’s Web site</a>.</b></blockquote>… causes an old Alanis Morrissette song to cue up on my mental jukebox.

    The Newspaper Association of America ditched print.

    And that's the definition of irony.
