Today's Poor Almanack

Here's a slice of desperate graveyard humor for the imploding newspaper business. If they could only reposition themselves as something more necessary, newspapers might survive. Did you know that you can clean glass with a newspaper and white vinegar?

The RMN used to run my strip 7.5" across! Bigger than any other paper. What a mess.

I'm afraid newspapers have had this coming, after JOAs and Big Media ownership messed up the process of Natural Selection. They eliminated healthy competition.

Now we'll finally get to see nature take her course... and perhaps people who actually love newspapers will start new ones. Imagine it!

BTW, this is the PERFECT time for readers to start writing to the Post complaining that the comics are too small. You gotta catch the train when it's in the station!
