The Rocky Mountain News: 149 years, 310 days PDF Print E-mail

A sign of the times in so many ways.

The Denver-based Rocky Mountain News is publishing its last edition today, just 55 days short of its 150th birthday. A victim of the change in technology and the economy. In a week when it is reported that the San Francisco Chronicle may go under as well and San Francisco left without any newspaper at all.

It is telling that I learned about it from an e-mail news alert sent out by my own local newspaper, the Gazette.

As part of their final edition, the Rocky has included online microfilms of front pages from that history: the day South Carolina seceded from the Union, reports from the Battle of Gettysburg, Lincoln's Assassination, Custer's last stand at LIttle Big Horn, the great San Francisco earthquake of 1906, the sinking of the Titanic, etc.

The Rocky's wonderfully gripping illustration of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake evokes the images of 9/11. Which the newspaper covered as well.

How does it change things, change us that we receive our news through video images and online rather than through print?

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew.
