Earlier this week, I posted about Graydon Carter’s use of the death metaphor for print. I argued that a power metaphor worked better, with print effectively demoted, but not dead.

Lo and behold, here’s another use of the life:death dyad for print, but this one is a little more spirited and entertaining than Carter’s verbose defense of his demoted medium.

Yes, printing’s alive. It’s just making less and losing stature.

Oh, and my iPad arrives tomorrow. I just couldn’t resist.
