Goodbye Rocky Mountain News

When I was growing up, there were two main newspapers in Denver: The Denver Post and the Rocky Mountain News. It was always kind of like a Coke or Pepsi type of thing - some people preferred one, other preferred the other, and it was more about style and feeling than about the content, because both were good. At our house we always had the Rocky Mountain News.
But times, they are a changin'. I took this picture when I was in Denver in December:That sign's probably not going to be up much longer, because the Rocky Mountain News has printed their last edition, and a Denver icon has passed away.
In this internet age, old slow media will have to adapt or else go the way of "The News" and Rest in Peace.
Here's a video about it:
