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!

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
