End of newspapers offers opportunity

Kyle Szarzynski writes:

We are nearing the end of an era in which writers hastily assemble poorly constructed pieces just before the deadline. Soon enough, editors will no longer be angrily making last-minute calls demanding a product and writing partisan pieces of hackery to serve as filler. Writers will no longer have to awkwardly send e-mails explaining why more pleasurable callings preclude them from writing anything and inane letters to the editor explaining the importance of voting won’t have to serve as a replacement to fill the page.

This is because the newspaper business is dying.
