It's production day for the school newspaper. Our store didn't have
any mill because the milk man didn't show up, hence no cafe. It'll be
a busy day to say the least, it always is.

I keep reading about newspaper fading away because of La Crisis and
because mainstream media is making the transition to online, but it's
just growing pains really. Print didn't die with the radio or tv. If
anything it's stronger than ever because the majority of the stuff I
see on tv and online is a bunch of bullshit.

Online journalism is the future and I'm happy to say I'll be a part
of, but I know that newspapers will never fade away. Brooklyn & Boyle
is proof of that. There are millions of stories to be told and only so
many people to write them. I happen to be one of those people. writing
stories from my part of town. If I don't do it, no one else will.
