Who needs newspapers?

In observation of the passing of the Rocky Mountain News, and with a hat tip to my friend Mike Finley, I pass along cartoonist Richard Thompson’s take on who needs newspapers.

    Bizarre take for someone who depends on newspapers for a living, at least I assume this cartoonist does. Personally, I’d have answered “anybody who wants investigative reporting”.

    Fun to see the cartoon again. But it is amazing to me that I should have lived to see the end of newspapering. As the cartoon shows, it was an almost perfect analog product — it worked on so many levels. I grieve for all my brothers and sisters who are being shaken out of the drawer.
