Yawn…. Something happened?

Nothing to see here. Move along.

Kudos for having the guts to do this.

Found this miniature diorama in Facebook (Diorama Dreams).

An iconic photo at the end of WWII is captured along with a front page of the Youngstown Vindicator.

I bet nearly everyone in Youngstown, Ohio, saved this front page!

According to Wikipedia, The Vindicator, as it’s now know has a daily circulation of 62,100 and 87,000 on Sunday.

And hey, look at this. The actual front page!

The impact of NewsPAPERS

One of the biggest stories in the USA for the last few weeks has been the mysterious bombing in Austin, Texas. Again, here’s an example of how the Internet may have the immediacy of speed, it has nothing on visual impact.

 

Exhibit A —  The Statesman’s web page. Ho-hum… almost just another story, except for the ALL CAPS red header.

Exhibit B —  The Statesman’s front page. BAM! People are going to buy this. Some will keep them for years and decades to remember that they survived.
