The sound of not-dead-yet

The recent news that the New Orleans Times-Picayune is going from a daily to three times a week prompted comments from some people outside the newsroom. The asked me if I thought, like they did, that the end was near for all newspapers.

Likely not. And I hope not! I usually go into this big explainer about how our newspaper, especially, has a strong web presence and blah-blah-blah.

Instead from now on, I think I'll just play them this recording I made of our presses winding down after a long press run. It's music to my ears. I hope the tune keeps playing for a long time.
