Last night was amazing.
Being the sort of person who loves the printed word and has an appreciation for history, I set out this morning to get copies of today’s newspapers. It started out very easily since the WaPo box on my street still had a few copies. It was all downhill from there. In retrospect, I should have been very happy since I know a lot of people who couldn’t even find that one. However, I wanted the whole array – NYT, WSJ, and somehow had the notion I might be able to find a copy of the Chicago Trib. An hour, three book stores, five CVSs, and about two dozen paper boxes later, I ended up late for work but with an NYT to match my WaPo.
On the way home, people were staring at my bag with paper-envy. Two people actually asked me when and where I found them. Next up: the special edition of Newsweek (and Time?) coming out tomorrow. My plan is simply to be at Borders as soon as it opens and hope they have it out.
