though seemingly dying, the local paper is a great source for what's going on in the world. though much has moved to the internet, even there most of the real news is dispatched by various local news gathering organizations, some of which still print the national, state and local stories on dead trees. on top of that, you get the funny pages, entertainment section and a whole host of other groupings which justify the advertisements you have to wade through to get to the content. but you know what train riders value most in the local paper?
seriously, about five different riders picked up the ads looking for coupons. i'm not sayin the quality of "hola la" warrants a second look, but just trust me when i say that it's not the only non-ad newspaper section that gets left behind on the train.
