Today’s Paper

This is your universal paper! It was deconstructed carefully so that it can be reassembled if need be. Read it once, carry it around with you, leave it on the kitchen table. It’s the only paper you’ll ever need!

    What a clever idea. The only issue with this is that I really love reading the newspaper (New York Times) every morning. The problem is with our tv news; that’s something where a few key words would suffice and I could metaphorically leave it on the table.

  2. Of course, it’s possible that I might not have created Today’s Paper if I regularly read the New York times. Actually though, the piece is more about standing back from the specific and observing what is happening in our world. Yes, each story is different and important in its own way. Nevertheless, there is this sense of repetition and circularity in what is reported. What does this say about the state of the world and our human condition?

    Those of us who worked in the news business have a saying: Today’s news, tomorrow’s fish-wrapper. Congratulations on making something more of it.
