Reason #527 not to let newspapers die

I was in the waiting room at my dentist's office yesterday afternoon and I ran across this little blurb in a magazine:

"Odor Eater:  When environmental lifestyle expert Danny Seo stopped by our office recently, he brought along plenty of his favorite tips, including this one:  Use newspaper to absorb odors as well as germs.  Associate Home Editor Laura Serino went ahead and hung the front page of the Sunday Times in her closet, stuck the classifieds in her fridge and left her dirty sneakers on top of the sports section, and, incredibly, everything smelled fresher!"
                                                      -- Family Circle, September 2008

See, we're not becoming obsolete after all!  Newspapers make the world less stinky!

(Side note:  Um, hey Dr. B, I think it's time to clean out your magazine rack, don't you? *points to issue date*)
