Path to the world at large

“Read a good newspaper … it will be your path to the world at large,” advises James MacGregor Burns, an American professor emeritus, in a New York Times back-to-college column.

The cynic in me wonders if the good professor would have the same advice were he younger, with a youthful perspective on social online media and  newspapers on the bleeding edge of bankruptcy. Still, it’s a nice idea.
