Déjà Lu

What's with the new design at the Charlottesville Daily Progress?

If it weren't for the occasional color photographs on the front pages of each section, I would swear that the paper was designed in the early 1970s and printed with hot type.

Each time I pick up the new Daily Progress, I half-expect to be reading the latest news about the Watergate hearings or Governor Godwin's tax policy, previews of The Poseidon Adventure or The Exorcist, and reviews of the newest songs by The Osmonds and The Partridge Family.

It's a real nostalgia trip. Check it out at your newsstands -- it'll make you believe that "Peanuts" is fresh and funny.
