I am a huge fan of the printed word. Magazine sales have consistently gone up despite the fact that much of the content can now be viewed on line. There is something about holding the paper, smelling the ads and leafing through the pages that I for one am not planning to let go.

I wish the Ambergris Today good luck in their bold move, but I am sad that we are back down to only one newsprint each week that focuses on San Pedro. I have loved the San Pedro Sun since day one (Coconut Wireless days) and I continue to look forward to receiving my copy fresh and crisp, hot off the presses each thursday - despite the fact that I may have already read the "news" on line during the week.
