My newspapers are my friends
RE: The reading life
I love newspapers. They are my friends. When I get up in the morning, they are in my mailbox waiting for me. So I go on my morning walk around the neighbourhood, then I settle down with my coffee and The Spectator and the Globe and Mail.
The Spec is first and I read left to right until I am finished. Then I circle features, comment page, letters, Jeff Mahoney, Paul Wilson. Then the Classifieds — lives, anniversaries, graduation and births.
I look forward to the weekend. That’s for the Spec, Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, New York Times, and the Ancaster News. But the comics are the first — everything I need to know about life is in the funny papers.
Paul Benedetti — I look forward to his take on life with cousins, parents, children and trips to the cottage etc. He brightens my day. It reminds how quickly the years pass. Last year I walked my granddaughter to kindergarten, this morning she drove off with my car.
Rabbi Baskin is a good read at the end of the day. His take on life directs and guides us to help us live more deeply.
So you can take my TV, but, keep your hands off my newspapers. Ruth Miller, Ancaster
