For instance, my mother is 89-and-a-half years old. She lives in Northeast Philadelphia and reads the Inquirer every day. She doesn’t own a computer. Her knowledge of computers, I would say, is minuscule. If there were no Inquirer in print, she would have to buy a computer, and at the age of almost 90, master new technology, or go to the Daily News, or stop reading.

monkeyajb: I don’t have anything against 90-year-old women, but as long as newspapers keep designing themselves for 90-year-old women, the newspapers will remain a dying (and irrelevant) breed.
