ISSUE #1: My Daily Newspapers

Each morning, as I wait for the coffee to brew, I make my way to the front door and crouch down to pick up my daily newspapers—The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and the Financial Times. In snapping open the first section and hearing the crinkle of fresh print beneath my fingertips, I can’t help but think of my grandfather and how my actions mirror his. My constant pursuit of knowledge is a trait I received from my grandfather. These three daily publications are essential to my day; I find their physical presence to be a concrete representation of information in this technology and data driven world. I view the WSJ as the quintessential American daily for anyone in business, and The New York Times as its liberal counterpart. Through the consumption of both I feel better informed on news, politics, marketing and business transactions, as well as spotlights on people of interest. That being said, I can think of no better morning than reading the FT Weekend Life & Arts section—it is the best weekend paper. Period.
