*sigh* Actually, I'm indexing newspapers from '95, so while I do get to read the newspapers, they're 18 years old. Although the news is interesting (reading about the OJ trial has been fun!), it's still not a walk in the park.
Indexing it means that I get to read the whole newspaper (save the classifieds and comics) and add the articles that relate to My City to the database with subjects, keywords etc. I do find it really interesting.
I admit, I am getting tired of hearing the comments (at least one a week, usually more) "so you get to read all day? Lucky!"
