BUFFALO, NY (staffannouncer.com) - It was thirty years ago today, September 19, 1982. I was in my second week of kindergarten, and the last editions of the Courier-Express were hitting Western New York front stoops with a thud. It was a thick Sunday edition, and most of the "A" section was dedicated to the forever silenced presses of the liberal morning newspaper.
This is page is simply that A section, presented one page at a time. Click on each page for a larger, easier to read version. I photographed, then edited each page. If anyone has a better idea for "scanning" newspapers, I'd love to hear it... and maybe would do more.

I'D BE HONORED IF YOU ALSO READ MY BLOG...

Written in the weeks following my dad's death on Palm Sunday, 2010. The story of his last week alive, and a reflection of our relationship and time together.
