papers and poetry: too many tons

Glad to hear my habit of being determined to read all of the Sunday NYTimes despite how far behind we get -- which leads to stacks of said newspapers -- is shared by GK:

this section of script starts with the New York Times song praising newspapers, followed by the tale of the barges of 80 tons of poetry going down the Ohio River near Cincinnati: (original broadcast June 13, 2009.)
