As a public historian I might argue that there were many other times in the past that people thought were the most problematic, dark, provocative, unsettling, inflammatory, challenging times ever! Then, there are those that believe that we experiencing such times today…and what better time to have access to a digital version of the long standing (in print since the mid 1800s), always informational, even hopeful, New York Times.
Alternate voices abound in the newspaper world, but in a bi-partisan stance I will suggest that at its best a newspaper story elicits responses that, especially in an academic community, provide fodder for discussion and debate. The digital copy of the NYT, back to 1851, offers substance for just such dialog.
