I want to start a collection of the last editions of all of the major newspapers that cease publication from now on. I'm already behind. I need to see if someone has a copy of the last edition of the Rocky Mountain News (Feb. 27, 2009) and today's issue of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. If you have a copy you are willing to spare, I'd be happy to reimburse you for the cost of the paper and shipping. Post a comment here with a way to contact you, and we'll see if we can work something out.
*Actually, it's not so much celebrating the death of newspapers as much as it is commemorating the industry's possible demise. I wanted to be a journalist from a fairly young age, and, even though I left the field after a few years of working in it, I'm still a bit sentimental about print journalism.
