Empty boxes

An amazing photo of discarded newspaper boxes from The Boston Globe’s “Scenes from the recession.” It perfectly reflects the recession ... and what we are talking about here. (Hat tip to Nate for pointing it out).


  1. The newspaper business was on the decline way before this recession, but just hastened along by it. Clever and insightful writers, however, will always be in demand.

  2. I saw a guy using a pay phone a couple days ago. If those things are still around, the "honor box" should stay for a while at least.

  3. This photo was taken in San Francisco. Ironically, I saw it in the RSS feed for Google's "cool" via Recommendations" blog, which automatically generates links to popular pages.
