Every Tuesday, I post the link to the Glendale News-Press website on my Facebook page so my friends all over the world can read my weekly column. Though it may be hard for my detractors to believe, I actually have loyal readers in places like Australia.
When the paper underwent an online makeover a few weeks back, my picture was removed and advertising links were put in its place. As a capitalist, I can understand this money-making move on the part of the paper. Filling cyberspace with ads instead of my picture is just business.
Last week, much to my surprise, a likeness of me returned. But it was not the photo I had been accustomed to. It was a miniscule grayish, thumbnail illustration on the News-Press' home page. At first, I didn't think much of. It was so small I could barely make out the image. So I downloaded the image to get a closer look.
