When I was growing up in Baton Rouge, after my family moved here from New Orleans just before I was born, The Times-Picayune was thrown in our yard each morning. After school, I would get on my bike to deliver The State-Times, the afternoon counterpart of the then-called Morning Advocate.

Besides the paper route, I’ve never worked for either paper (this is a syndicated column), but as with most of their dual readers, their newly engaged business rivalry holds my attention as much as any stories they publish these days.On May 1, both papers ran front-page banner headlines announcing their big changes: “Georges buys Advocate” and “T-P adding newsstand tab 3 days a week.”
