The looming crisis

You know, this really never occurred to me, but it makes sense:

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — San Francisco’s animal control agency is relying on donated newspapers to solve pooping puppies problem.

It seems digital newspaper subscriptions and smartphones have cut the once abundant supplies of old newspapers.

Animal Care & Control has been relying on public contributions and San Francisco Chronicle (http://bit.ly/XLirUN ) donations to line the cages of shelter puppies needing potty training.

Now, the San Francisco Public Library is donating old newspapers to make sure the shelter has a consistent paper stream.

Something else to blame on Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, and, hey, don't look at me, I'm still in there trying to do right by your puppies -- and your bird cages in need of lining and and dead fish in need of' wrapping, too.
