I read this tonight on Mashable.com and felt I need to pay homage…
The Times has been a good friend to me for many years.
I am saddened.
I am struck with grief.
I am heartbroken.
I am ready.
It’s been a long, slow fall for the biggest icon of our time of print media.
I can’t believe my nieces, nephews and students will never hold that tight bundle, will never breathe in that inky scent, and never feel the frisson of opening the best newspaper in the world…shaking it out and arranging it just so…
But…nor will I forget the first time I got it in it’s full glory on the glowing screen. The sheer ability to share with friends, family and students, the hugeness kof it, the never-ending delights.
Things change. History. Tempus fugit. I am getting old.
It’s the Times, and I hope it rolls like a river. On and on…
RIP, beloved friend.
God save the Times!
