“Extra. Extra. Read all about it.” It was a call years ago before many households had radios and TVs were available. Newspaper publishers printed extra editions when exciting news-breaking events happened, and the men and boys sold those copies on corners.
It sounds like a simpler time, a perhaps more romantic time. Still, it was also a rough time for the newspaper boys, who were usually homeless and, according to research, had to purchase their papers before they sold them and could not afford any unsold copies.
Today, it takes permission and planning for a newsletter to reach inboxes. I thank you for those who have signed up and who open and read my news.
