Newspaper Lint

I just, seconds ago, finished watching the movie State of Play. Well, it was a movie full of intrigue and secrets and murder! But my favorite part came at the end of the movie right before the credits rolled:  the headline story was shown going to press.

The negative was shot, the PMT made, the plate made and inked, the paper wheel rolled out, the press readied, the paper run and collated.

I could almost smell the ink and feel the paper lint that is left after the pages are cut and stacked and made into a newspaper. A newspaper!

Great ending.
