Deckard: a blade runner and newspaper reader
"Blade Runner: The Final Cut" has a brief run at a theater in my area. I had never seen the movie, originally released in 1982, on the big screen. The experience did not disappoint.

Among other things, I noticed that our first view of the Deckard character, played by Harrison Ford, shows him reading a newspaper. Apparently, the visionaries who dreamed up what Los Angeles would look like in 2019 thought that print media would last at least that long.

UPDATE: See more newspapers of the future (as foretold in the movies) in this post at I09.
