The last paper

These days, more people read the news online than subscribe to a newspaper.
Some day in the future, the last newspaper will roll off of the presses.
Reporters empty their desks into cardboard boxes, and they go home to start blogs, Twitters, and YouTube channels.
The last paper boy will wrap that paper in a plastic bag, pedal to his last subscriber’s house, and toss that last paper on that house’s roof.
Over the next few weeks, that paper will get soaked by the rain, rot into a disgusting lump, and then get blasted into oblivion with a power washer.
