There's still a good use for newsprint

Many say print journalism is going the way of the dinosaur, with more and more newspapers and magazines going digital, either in part or exclusively. In addition, the age-old secondary usage of newspapers was the use of them as wrapping for fresh fish by fish-mongers.

However, there is nary a fish-monger today and fish is generally wrapped at the supermarket in sanitary official supermarket wrap. Having long ago dispensed with wasting money on publications whose editorial point of view is totally opposite of everything I believe in, I thought I had no use whatsoever for the print edition of your paper.

However, yesterday the little woman and I were at the dollar store in Oneonta buying some vases for our church potluck dinner. When we went to check out, the clerk used pages of The Daily Star to wrap each vase to help avoid breakage.

So, you see, there is a use for of all of those pages of newsprint wasted promoting murder of the unborn, marriage of sodomites, women in combat, and the disarming of the American citizenry by the unholy trinity of the Obamanation, Mario the pious and Mayor Doomberg. Be of good cheer and keep printing your liberal rag.
