This blog was inspired by a desire to share some of the more interesting items I have found while perusing old newspapers. Over the course of the past year I have learned a lot about how the media/journalism, society, and the world in general has evolved (and in some cases how it has devolved) over the last 100 years or so. It has been an amazing ride: shockingly graphic tragedies, subjects that would violate all aspects of modern political correctness, and a newfound respect for the English language.
However, I recently find myself unable to continue posting articles, as I have moved on to other endeavors; specifically, iPhone apps. I don’t know how long this blog will be on hold, as there are still so many interesting gems waiting in the old archives and I am eager to eventually get back to discovering them. In the meantime, I invite you to revisit some of the 833 posts in this blog, or contact me if you have any questions.
I appreciate all of you who have taken the time to read my posts, shared them, and left comments. It is gratifying to discover others who share the same interest.
