It will shrink and eventually be eclipsed by digital, but I‘d bet The New York Times will be printing and distributing newspapers for the rest of my life. At least the next 30+ years.

When I’m vacation, I look forward to walking down to the general store in the morning and coming home with a bag full of bagels and an armful of papers.

Print books aren’t going away, and neither are print newspapers.
