Everyone knows older media such as newspapers are facing declining readership levels. A lot of newspapers are trying to get in good with the younger demographic to stave off the slide.

Upcoming articles may include "Wired: Dealing with the Pain and Embarrassment of Braces", "Hollister Employees Way Cuter Than Gap's", or possibly "Chipotle: Great Food or Greatest Food Ever?” Congrats to the paper, you guys are one step closer to becoming USA Today.
