1188. The Last Picture Show

L'ultima prima paginaChiude anche il Rocky Mountains News, proprio mentre stava per festeggiare il 150° anniversario:
It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to you today. Our time chronicling the life of Denver and Colorado, the nation and the world, is over. Thousands of men and women have worked at this newspaper since William Byers produced its first edition on the banks of Cherry Creek on April 23, 1859. We speak, we believe, for all of them, when we say that it has been an honor to serve you. To have reached this day, the final edition of the Rocky Mountain News, just 55 days shy of its 150th birthday is painful. We will scatter. And all that will be left are the stories we have told, captured on microfilm or in digital archives, devices unimaginable in those first days...

*Ho scelto come titolo del post quello del >bellissimo film di Bogdanovich (al quale sono molto affezionata). L'ho fatto perché - come in quel caso - credo stia davvero finendo un'epoca. Senza però che un'altra - mi pare - sia ancora apparsa nitidamente all'orizzonte.
