Do you save newspapers from important events?

I do. I have one from Princess Diana's death, one from January 1 2000, quite a few from 9/11, and some from 2004 when a few historical buildings on Main Street burned dwn.

Not on purpose. However, I know there are very old newspapers around the house. I remember finding one dated February 25, 1987!!! It was in a box with other old stuff.

I do; I save everything from horse racing (EVERYTHING, unless it's a tiny little 3-lined paragraph on the last page). Occationally I save articles that shock me and sadden me, like that one story about a couple of officers barging into the wrong apartment (it was supposed to be a drug sting, I think) and when the family dog jumped at them, they shot him. The little boy of the family was having a birthday party when that happened, and the article showed a picture of the owner holding a picture of the dog (who was performing "beg") with her face blotchy from tears. And I have another article (2 as a matter of fact) of some dogs who died at our only dog park (the first one died when he was run over, 2 or 3 more died during the following winter when they fell through the ice on the ponds and drowned). There's another story of a boy who was playing with his dog at a park and the dog accidently hung himself to death with his leash, and the boy was terrified and said some punks hung the dog. Later on he told the truth. And there was a more recent one of a beautiful Akbash dog who went missing and was later found skinned alongside the road (that was particular disgusting)

The horse racing articles I cut out and put on my bulletin board in my room (eventually being packed up in a folder to make room for future articles, lol). The "miscellaneous" articles go into a box which is starting to overflow, lol

I saved one from 9/11, not sure where it is...somewhere in boxes I have. Sometimes I do, but most times I don't.

I think the only thing I saved was the article they wrote about Douglas Adams' the day after he died.

I have several newspapers form when Dale Earnhardt died. I happened to visit Charlotte, NC, on the day his memorial service was held there, so I got one from there, and The Augusta Chronicle.
Gee, I may be a redneck.

I have all the articles when my husband was killed in a boat accident..It was pretty major 2 other people died also and it was in the papers and on the news for months! Also because I was fighting for a speed limit almost a year after it was still in the news.

I saved 2 newspapers. The first one was when the Florida Marlins won the 2003 World Series, and the second one was when the Miami Heat won the 2006 NBA Championship.

We have one saved from 9/11 and one from each of the days our daughters were born. I think it will be neat for them to look back at them when they're older.
