All it took was buying one, just one, The New York Times. It’s not about on line reading, it’s about the dirty newsprint and the cheap paper and folding and reading the continuing story on page …
This was my “treat” on a Saturday night after a long day at work, there was an article on the iPhone 6 that caught my eye and I chose to buy this for my Saturday evening “read fest.” I read the entire paper, well, I did skip a few, but not many. I read the front page, the Arts & Leisure, and, feast of all feasts, the obituaries.
I LOVE the obituaries in The New York Times. I told my funeral director (in anticipation and obtaining information only folks…), when it was stated, “you will want an obituary,” that “I don’t! I don’t want an obituary, I want people to say, Hey, I haven’t seen Kathi in awhile, I wonder what she is up to!” However, I have changed my mind. I want my obituary, but I want it in The New York Times. If you haven’t read a New York Times obituary, I suggest you run out this morning and buy a copy and just read the obits. They will absolutely surprise you. These writers of the New York Times obituaries are fantastic! Phenomenal! They should be writing the blogs and the books!
New York. New York. If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere…. 🙂
