Computers, phooey! Many folks still savor coffee, printed page

By VIRGINIA WELLS Paducah

EDITOR:

I am not complaining about the Monday online paper. I have a computer. Many loyal subscribers may not.

Young people are not newspaper readers. They could care less, as they get news on smart phones. They do not send checks in the mail to pay for the printed word. They are out and moving, listening to the radio in their cars. They catch the news on TV as they sit in fast food restaurants.

The people who want this paper have their coffee at home, not Starbucks. They want to spread it out on the kitchen table, drink their coffee, eat their Cheerios and clip the coupons -- paper ones. They do not want "fake news," word of mouth, hearsay on computer pages.

People still read. Go to the public library and look at all the people reading. Look in the quiet reading room with all the newspapers. It will warm your heart to the blessed paper page. Consider.

Title: A Good Read

I agree reading the newspaper without the aid of your computer , smartphone , etc. is the best. You certainly don't get that warm fuzzy feeling when you use any 21st Century electronic device.
Well stated, Virginia!

Title: "paper in hand better than 'paper' on machine"

I so agree with Ms. Wells!!
