Where newspaper racks go to die

These photos of disused newspaper racks in a San Francisco storage yard – taken March 13, 2009 by AP/Noah Berger – are pretty much all you need to know about the state of the industry. No one is buying, and it's time to throw the old technology for distributing news away.f-2_5301.jpg

You think that's bad, try to actually buy some! We're looking for newspaper racks - even used - that we could sand down and recycle for our own newspaper. We would pick up. If anybody knows who to contact, please let me know at frank@ivhttp://-times.com. Thanks.

Aww, there must be something creative to be done with all these cute stands? Maybe they will form a giant news-paper megazord robot!

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
