MORE THAN 8600 editions of the News of the World have hit the streets. I bought the last edition, the one with double the normal print run, on July 10, 2011. It was a self-congratulatory issue, with a bold front page announcing, "After 168 years, we finally say a sad but very proud farewell to all our loyal readers." It featured a 48-page souvenir pullout (that I did not read) and a kind statement on the front page that claims, "Profits from this historic edition will go to charity." I liked looking at the old front page, printed in London, from October 1, 1843. Both sides of my family, one from Ireland and another from Germany, would have been in Europe when that paper hit the streets, I imagine those great-great grandparents would have been able to read that paper but I'm not sure they would have paid three pence for the paper. I thought about the News of the World for two minutes and shared those thoughts on Audioboo. Click the photo to see the YouTube clip. It's the 100th clip I've made for YouTube.
