Sounds Too Familiar

When you read the letters of Herb Stark in The Dallas Morning News, keep in mind the man from Massapequa, New York, isn't just a fan of the hometown paper. He's a fan of every newspaper: Says here in today's New York Newsday that every morning the 76-year-old wakes up and fires up the computer to scan the online editions of some 30 papers from across the country and around the world--"from The Dallas Morning News to The New York Times, from the International Herald Tribune in Paris to the Irish Examiner in County Cork." Says the retired phone-company repairman, "This is what I do, and believe me, it's pretty tough to think of things to write." This will be me in 40 years. Or yesterday. --Robert Wilonsky
