"The end is near for paper-based newspapers."

I can see this on a local level. I am offered a free local Advertiser regularly when grabbing a few groceries at Foodland. This weekend, two plastic wrapped papers were left on our front lawn.

Interesting turn of events - we certainly need news and reporting, but accessing it in paper form, not so much.
