And what will we use to wrap fish and start fires?

It is a whole other thing, isn't it? The change that's surely on its  
way--the end of paper. I worry about it, of course. Most of my most  
used and most useful books are not likely candidates for e-book status  
any time soon. And I think we will all miss newspapers in ways that  
are not obviously apparent; television, radio, and internet news would  
not be possible without newspapers because it is the Associated Press,  
which is jointly owned and fed by, as well as fed to, newspapers that  
is the real backbone of the news business--radio, television, print...  
and internet. It relies on both the input and output of news to  
survive, with newspapers providing most of the input and the parasite  
media--radio, tv, internet--paying for much of the output. It's an  
enormously complicated web that is driven, mostly, by reporters, as  
they say, "on the ground." Radio, tv, internet--they don't have  
reporters, they have news readers, news packagers, news sellers,  
booster, PR flacks. And most of them, because they are accountable  
only, at best, to their advertisers and, at worst, to themselves,  
they... but I'm ranting. Sorry. At ease; carry on.
