Look at the bright side

With all the talk about daily newspapers struggling and starting to fold, people forget to remember the positives. Fewer newspapers printed mean fewer trees cut down to be used for newsprint. And fewer miles traveled by the delivery people, since most carry for just one paper. When I worked at the Bluefield WV newspaper, I remember leaving before the press run and seeing a parking lot full of cars waiting to distribute the news.
Less gasoline is being burned in Denver and Seattle. Isn't that what we want? Or is cutting back good only when someone else suffers?
