Paper and ink beat the storm

This article appears in the Hurricane Sandy feature series. View the full series.

Three cheers for old fashioned, throwback newspaper delivery! The Huffington Post, Gawker and other websites were down on Tuesday because of power outage problems, but my Washington Post -- the real ink and paper kind -- was in my driveway yesterday and this morning in suburban Maryland. So, take that Sandy! We lost a front railing to crazy winds and rain last night, but the paper was there by 6 this morning. My old newsman's heart was happy.
