Paragraph of the day from the slowly assembling novel...

Derek could remember journalism class at WSU, a fellow student asking their professor what he thought about the threat the Internet posed to traditional media.  Talbot had pooh-poohed it.  Nabbed a Seattle Times off his desk and prop in hand, walked around the classroom, putting out the point the mobility the paper offered.  Anything on the Internet, you had to sit down in front of a computer to get to.  Nope.  Nope.  Newspapers, magazines, you could take them with you.  Fold 'em up.  Put 'em in your back pocket.  Show 'em to your friends.  Use them as a club need be.  In the race for the reader, they would always own the edge.
