Alert the Copy Desk

Given my career background in the print media, it should come as no surprise to anybody that I was interested to read The Wall Street Journal’s selection of the five best books about writing for newspapers. And the headline is a classic: “Ink-Stained Riches.” I wish I’d been the one to think of that one!

Also check out Los Angeles historian Larry Harnisch’s report, in his excellent Daily Mirror blog, showing how newspapers have shrunk in physical dimensions over the last four decades, due primarily to the escalating costs of newsprint.
