My Newspaper Is Prettier Than Your Newpaper

1 Oct

It sort of looks like the city of Augusta birthed a baby girl today. She didn’t. Every year on October 1st, Augusta is decked out in pink for the start of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink fountains, pink bows, pink newspaper:

This is the 3rd year that The Augusta Chronicle has printed on pink paper on October 1st. It costs significantly more for them to so, but the nice folks over there decide each year that the benefit trumps the cost. (And, I know you are wondering…yes, a portion of the ad sales go to a breast cancer charity.)

“As we have in years past, The Augusta Chronicle is being printed today on pink paper to help raise awareness of the plight of the estimated hundreds of thousands of people nationwide who are fighting brave battles against breast cancer.” -Augusta Chronicle Editorial Staff
