Thread: Wonderful read!

    Wonderful read!

    I found this article through a link on another website. It's a wonderful article, and it give me hope that there are still bona-fide storytellers in the journalism schools in the country.

    It's about the closing of a local icon in Indiana. If I tried to describe it further, I'd be doing the piece an injustice. If there are any newspaper execs reading this, I think you've just found your next local news reporter.

    That isn't an article, it's a book. Well, short story at least. Good writing style. It's always a little sad to see old times slip away like that.
    Sort of reminds me of the closing of the last Drive In movie place in Indy.

    Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go, and then do it. --Ann Landers
