I always wondered what the citizens of Paradigm City spent all their time reading. The newspaper, of course, but what’s in it? I feel that whatever it is must give us great insight into the culture and current state of Paradigm City. There are no books seen within the series, save for a library full of empty books, so turning to newspapers is our only hope to gaining information on this very unique piece of history, from an even more unique time that has, unfortunately, passed. Just as the literature of Vladimir Nabokov — most notably “Lolita” — has taught us that all the people the author lived near were terrible human beings, I wish to learn what type of world Paradigm City really was, beneath the surface of everything that The Big O showed to us.
