Happy birthday

My favourite newspaper celebrates today its 190th birthday. The first edition appeared on the very day Napoléon died, although it took a fortnight for that news to reach Manchester and appear in print. I guess Twitter was down that day...

For many years the front page was devoted exclusively to small ads... Now that certainly is an interesting business model which surely some newspaper proprietors should be considering. No?.
