Remembering Michael

People used to go out and buy newspapers on days of special events. For example, I tried to buy a NYTimes when Obama was elected as our President, but they were sold out everywhere. (Now you can buy one on ebay!!!)

When MJ recently passed away - I figured the same thing would happen. So I decided to do the next best thing - screenshots of the NYTimes homepage. But does this equate or was I just lazy? The interesting thing about online media is that is updates itself so quickly and frequently, that it is the best source for current updated information anyhow. Also, within the first 24 hours, there were more photographs on the NYTimes homepage than I think they had published in their newspaper - so which version is more valuable? On ebay, MJ's paper is more expensive that Obama's. But I got a screenshot of the first NYTimes story.
