Why aren't there more youth oriented comics in the (surviving) newspapers?

You're welcome, BBB (I often got to read my older sister's copies of Nancy when I was a wee lad), but to answer Cardigan's question, is it maybe because the green-eyeshade folks think it just doesn't pay?

I remember those racks, what happened to all the “mom and pop” candy and sundry stores that had these comic book racks?

Remember 5 and dime stores, when you could actually buy things for a nickel or a dime?

Regarding nickels and dimes, doesn't change come from within?

Wasn't it John Lennon who said to give "please" a chance?
