I'm starting to think I shouldn't have invested exclusively in newspaper publishing.

Before I drive off to work pre-dawn, I'll grab the FWST waiting on the driveway and toss it up to the front door so my wife can just open the door and find the paper. Some days, the FWST is so light that I can't toss it 30 feet without it fluttering off course like a butterfly. I have to walk it up to the front door. A city with 800,000 people in a county with nearly 2 million people should not have a newspaper that flutters on a 30 foot toss.

Liberal paper in conservative town.

Tuesday's paper is always the lightest. More like a pamphlet. They should be ashamed of themselves for charging the same on that day

They also eliminated one of my crosswords and a comic strip I liked, ( Pearls Before Swine).

2:11, hate to disagree with you, but Startle-Gram is not liberal. Not now, nor has it ever been. From Amon Carter to Jr to Cap Cities to McClatchey it has been good old Chamber of Commerce conservative. Not the crazy John Birch - rich Park Cities conservative of the Dallas Morning News, but middle of the road conservative. If you want to see a liberal paper, read the Austin- American Statesman. Now that is a liberal paper.

The newspaper that we grew up with is dying and has been for quite some time.

Think about Amon Carter!!?? The fact of would fill up his gas tank in FTW to avoid spending a buck in Dallas. He would pack his lunch if he had a meeting in Dallas...as to not spend a penny in Dallas.

Now, the Dallas Morning news prints the telegram. The original paper plant in downtown FTW has now been sold. The second print location at I-20 and 35 in south FTW, sold two years ago.

Rusty the steer now hangs over a fireplace.

I asked a long tenured employee if Amon has rolled over in his grave? His reply, "Several times."

So sad.

People still read the paper?

Loved reading it for years but it has been many years since I have read anything not on line.
