Yes I do, but ours is getting smaller and smaller.  I think journalism itself is becoming an outdated profession.  So many people seem to get their news from Twitter and Facebook and websites rather than actual news sources.

I read one every now and then.  A friend of mine told my daughter when we were growing up, while most of them were just learning to read the comics, I was reading the newspaper.  That was because I was reading at the age of 2. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I read it when someone leaves it on the lunch table and it's free.  I can't afford to purchase the daily paper.  The neighbor brings the used paper to us a couple of times a week and I use it under my dogs potty pads.  In exchange the neighbor puts their trash in our cans and doesn't pay a monthly bill.

I get on puter for home town paper everyday just to see what is going on.  But I buy a paper every Sunday to get the coupons.  That is the only time I will buy one.

I just go online and check out the headlines. I can't afford to buy the newspaper everyday.

I do but not every day mainly to keep up with the local news.  I will usually sit down once a week and catch up on all of the local news.  Our local news stations cover news for three states so we don't get much localized news unless we read the weekly town newspaper.
Have a wonderful day!

I do get the local paper delivered to my house and read it every day that it is printed.  It might be much in the paper, but I still read it.

Yes, we still get the paper delivered everyday.  I always read the local section and glance over the world news.

Yes, whenever I have time I'll read a physical newspaper because there're different from the computer copy.
