Maybe we’re old fashioned, but the Man of the House and I still like reading newspapers. We read them online, but we also like reading newspapers that we can hold in our hands. When we started our lives together we lived in Bellevue so we read The Seattle Times.
Then we moved to Port Townsend. There we got the weekly Port Townsend newspaper, The Leader as well as the Peninsula Daily News from nearby Port Angeles. The Peninsula Daily News is a funny sort of newspaper. It’s not actually published daily. Three’s no paper on Saturday. Also when we had our subscription the writers were very fond of puns. I hate puns! One day I remember there were two puns in the headlines on the front page.
Now that we’ve moved north of Seattle we’re getting the local weekly newspaper and the Sunday Everett Herald. The Herald is a funny sort of paper as well. The newspaper to ad ratio on the Sunday paper is really out of wack. There are twice as many inserts and ads as there is newspaper. And the newspaper content is not that compelling. I read a lot and have many interests, but I can get through a Sunday Everett Herald in about ten minutes.
