Howdy, folks. Skip all this if you want. My feelings won’t be hurt.
OrangeBean is approaching our fifth year, and I thought of starting a new site entry: old newspaper articles. Hands down my favorite part of this job is sifting through newspaper databases to track down stories.
I’m not huge on nostalgia, but I can say with certainty newspapers were almost an artform of information distribution. Also, there was no analysis just facts. Old news wasn’t always good news, but it was well-written.
So enjoy these four stories I plucked out today. I may do this daily, or every few days, but you’ll see it pop up fairly often.
