The Edmonton Journal was not in my mailbox this morning.
That usually means the day is ruined. Seriously, if I don't start the day with a bowl of cereal and the journal I'm one grumpy sourpuss (I mean, even more than usual).
Plus, I hate reading the news online. I like to spread out the pages, scan the headlines, and savour the comics. I will never convert to an online subscription. Yes, I know newsprint is bad for the environment, but I recycle the old papers. And yes, I know all the newspaper companies are going under and that one day I'll be forced to read the news online, but for now I'm supporting my local paper, and the local economy and will continue to read the paper. In paper.
Except today, because it's lost.
And that's all I'm saying.
