RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Now perhaps a decade ago my students came home from Portland Public School and informed me that I had to subscribe to the Oregonian because their teacher required it for class. We strolled across the street to a friend's place and we pulled the days paper out of the recycle pile and I had my student sit and read the paper and write down the date stamp for every story that they recognized. In every case, simply by accessing the Web and listening to OPB/NPR they were a day, to days, ahead of the Oregonian. Those students still do not take the paper; that medium was out of date a decade ago.
My perspective has always been considering the column inches devoted to advertising, the Oregonian should be free.
No the newsprint media is an environmental impact that is easily avoided, and all together unnecessary!
