One of the reasons why I love writing historical-themed cover stories is that it gives me the excuse to look through years of microfilm of the county's old newspapers--not just the Orange County Register
and Los Angeles Times
, but the county's many long-gone dailies. Not only are they time capsules, but they are chockablock with bloggable treasures that still resonate to a modern-day audience--like the reprehensible caricature of a Mexican in an 1924 Fullerton Daily Tribune
op-ed cartoon--which, of course, is after the jump.
