You did it, technology

And by "did it," I mean "killed the newspaper." I like the newspaper. I have a job now where I actually have free time during which I could read the newspaper. I really liked the fact that we get the Monday paper free here, so I kind of got used to enjoying thumbing through it. I was seriously considering subscribing to the newspaper.

Then I discovered the magic that is Google Reader. Now all I needed to do to get the news was subscribe to the Google News RSS feed for Ann Arbor. So not only was I getting the news for free from the same source, but I was getting it way before it even hit print. Now when I see the Monday paper sitting there, I send it straight to the recycling.

And not only can I subscribe to the comics, but I get the latest lolcat news too all with Google Reader.

Thanks, Internet!
