When I was a kid, my dad’s motto was ‘old news is good news’. If he saw a newspaper lying around at a someone’s house and it was weeks old, he’d still read it.
There was the odd occasion he bought a paper fresh-off-the-press. When he did, the only page worth reading, to my ten-year-old thinking, was the comics.
Nothing much has changed.
Dad still reads old papers. Especially when he finds them lying around on the job site.
And I still only read the comics.
