Letter: Newspaper vs. Internet

Dear Editor,

I assume most of us own and operate a computer, though I have friends who do not. I subscribe to newspapers and magazines because I like to read newspapers and magazines. I do not like to read a partial article that ends by telling me if I would like to read more on the subject, I need to log onto "whatever."

A perfect example is the mother/daughter lookalike contest. I enjoy seeing the pictures in print. I do not particularly enjoy having to log on to the website to see the photos, or read whatever it is that is continued, whether it's from your paper, any other paper, a magazine or the TV news.

I hope for all of our sakes that newsprint does not disappear from our world.

Kay Ivins
