Pick Your Problem

Which crisis is more urgent:

the collapsing world economy, the accelerating buildup of greenhouse gases, the growing instability of Pakistan’s governing coalition,  the 29,000 children under five years old that die everyday from causes related to poverty, or the the tottering newspaper industry?

Really depends where you sit, doesn’t it?

    It depends on your time scale, and the necessity of getting from here to there.  Also if you can chew gum and walk at the same time.

    As for the newspaper industry, thanks for nothing.

    Eli,
    As to your last point, you should try living in a society without a free press. You might then feel differently about the value of journalism.

    Again you make a category error by identifying newspapers with journalism

    Are you joking or are you serious? if the latter, then do tell how you would categorize newspapers?
