THE LOST ART OF READING THE NEWSPAPER. January 28, 2007 5:29 PM

THE LOST ART OF READING A NEWSPAPER
By Garrison Keillor of the Chicago Tribune

Young people are missing out on something important--"the fine art of holding a newspaper," said Garrison Keillor. I see them at their laptops, "as they drift through MySpace, that encylo- pedia of the pathetic," and it's plain that "nobody has ever shown them that open- ing up a newspaper is the key to looking classy and smart." A man at a laptop "is a man at a desk, a stiff, a drone." But stylishly reading a paper puts you in the company of Cary Grant, Spencer Tracy, Jimmy Stewart, all the greats." Here's how it's done: open the paper with a flourish and an audible ripple of news- print. Turn the pages crisply, "your eyes dancing over the world's sorrows and moving on, crinkling the page, snapping it, rolling it, folding the paper in halves and quarters." Scan quickly, as if to show nothing impresses you over-much. When you're done, "clap it shut and toss it aside." The whole proceedure should take 20 minutes, tops. Or, go on wasting hours a day mucking through the garbage on the Internet.
"It's your life, you choose."
