Detroit's major newspapers the Detroit Free Press and Detroit News will no longer greet residents on their front porches every morning, as these papers are the first in the US to end daily home delivery. The newspapers decided to cut service down to three days a week, thanks to the cost of ink, fuel, and paper. Since 2002, both papers have seen about a 20 percent decrease in circulation.
Newspaper delivery boys and girls (or adults) will still be able to make a dime on Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays. In addition, print addicts can pick up a tangible copy at the newsstand. For $12 a month, subscribers will get the three day delivery service, as well as a daily email delivery. The papers can also be read online. It doesn't sound so bad!
Considering the popularity of email, maybe home mail delivery will be the next to go, requiring everyone to go to the post office when they need to pick up an item.
