I like what Drew has! I found a link with newspaper icons and there is one that might fit
quickly with his drawings - the envelope open with a news headline coming out of the envelope.
 All of these icons claim to be free according to the top of the page.

For more presentations - there is a newspaper headline/article generator that I have used
in the past - and a  billboard generator that I have not used, but looked nice:

Newspaper generator - fill in your information, generate the paper (it will be as long as
your text) and then take the link below your generated newspaper to save the image to your

Billboard generator:

Hi Drew,

I did a local build of the website, with your logo in it.  Good news
is you have the alignment of the normal and hover versions perfect.
So it works well in that regard.

But we're only getting a partial render in each state.  I see the g+
icon and 90% of the Twitter fish.  Now, we could muck around with the
CSS to show more of that, but that would expand the entire block for
that item and put the page out of balance, IMHO.

Ideally I think we want to have this icon use the same vertical space
as the other icons, i.e., the same visible space, not just the same
total 500px space.   We have a similar constraint on horizontal size,
in order to preserve the text alignment.

I wonder if a newspaper icon would work in this context?  Keep
informed, announcements, news, etc.
