I was struck, as I’d bet many of you were, at how New Orleaneans
reacted to the impending lost of their daily print newspaper. People out
in the streets (iconic for the ages Ted Jackson photo), demanding their paper.
For years, we’ve seen the wasting away of local dailies — not just in
pages, but in staffing, in reporting — with curiously little protest.
Readers, like hypothetical frogs in slowly heating water, haven’t registered much reaction.
