The incredible shrinking Washington Post

Recently, my daughter asked where the Washington Post Style section was. "It's right there," I said, referring to the thin pile of pages she had already picked up.

"No, I mean the whole section. I want to read the comics."

"That is the whole Style section," I said.

"What happened to it?" she asked.

"Well, the Washington Post is dying," I said, then trying to correct myself, "—it's shrinking."

Without saying a word, she got a piece of notebook paper and started drawing. I found the picture above a little later, after she'd gone on to something else.
