1932: THE TRENTON TIMES: A JOURNALISTIC LEGEND
The Trenton Times has been a daily visitor in the Glover household for nearly 100 of its 128 year existence.Lately we have been hearing stories of the demise of the daily newspaper as it becomes the victim of computer digital technology. I am not the only one who will not buy into that theory. True, digital delivery of the news on the computer is convenient, but like the current "Kindle" craze, nothing takes the place of the genuine article. For as long as I can remember, I have poured that first cup of coffee, that frosty glass of fresh squeezed orange juice, lit up my "FT" filter cigar, and sat down to read my morning newspapers; heavenly contentment, and a wonderful way to start the day! The Trenton Times was on the Glover table long before that 1946 strike that spawned the sometimes crude and impudent "in your face" daily tabloid, "The Trentonian."
