    Note on the front page today. Beginning Monday the paper will be 1½ inches narrower.

    That's not new news. I can remember some discussion of the topic a while back.

    I think they're following USA Today, which downsized several months back.

    And following almost every other major paper in the country, including The Wall Street Journal, which was the size of a blanket until this year.

    Is the Rock Springs (Wyo.) Rocket Miner still wide enough to run eight standard-sized columns on its pages?
  8. They just shrunk/shrank/shrinked about five years ago - as did just about every other paper - when paper prices shrunk. Wonder what the total of shrinkage is ...

    2much, not only is Rock Springs still wide but the Laramie Boomerang is, too. Those papers just look wrong next to any others.

    I don't know about that, crusoes. I swear USA TODAY has looked smaller in size in recent weeks. I could be wrong, though. :)
