The Making of a Print Person 

My son has decided to become a publisher.

This week, he and his cub scout den visited a local newspaper printing plant. The field trip was scheduled after a long day of school, and the kids started out restless and bored.

But the moment they got their eyes on the monster web press, with paper streaming above their heads, the massive noise, the forklifts moving rolls of newsprint into position, and the papers popping out folded and ready to go, they were hooked.

Last night, my son collected a few of the magazines I've been associated with, and took them to bed to read. I think it's the first time he's noticed that Daddy's name appears on the masthead.

He's hooked.

Saving the future of magazines, one kid at a time.
