Newspaper Chase III

As long as I've lived in Boston, there's been a slightly delapidated newsstand perched on the corner of Boylston and Dartmouth streets by the Old South Church on Copley Square. A few weeks ago, the newsstand shut up shop, its new owner of just two years bowing out quickly but quietly. The stand's previous owner, Max Kaiserman, ran the old-school shop for 73 years, missing only a few months of work while he recuperated from heart surgery. Even though Kaiserman had passed the torch, the traditional newsstand is now moving steadily into the past. Even though I didn't frequent the stand, I'll miss its presence.
