The end of "the daily"

Detroit papers drop home delivery to 3 days a week


Fighting to stay in business, Detroit's two daily newspapers will radically change their relationship with readers by slashing home delivery to three days a week, printing small editions on other days and encouraging people to get information online.

Comment: Believe it or not, when I was a kid in Cincinnati, we received 2 papers a day. The Cincinnati Enquirer in the morning and the Cincinnati Post in the afternoon.

In college, I worked Saturday nights at the Enquirer loading papers onto trucks. I think it was from 6:00 p.m. until 2:30 a.m.

We also had thrice weekly milk delivery. How times have changed!
