A Sign of the Times?

On a recent trip to the Half Price Books store in Mayfield Heights, I couldn't help noticing that the once-abundant media section had seemingly disappeared. So I asked an employee for help. Turns out that due to a remodeling, it's been moved to the Performing Arts section of the store, which has sub-signage for the Film, Music and even Dance sections. But no ceiling signs for journalism and media. It's an inadvertently telling parallel to what's happening in the world beyond the bookstore, where media outlets are increasingly becoming less and less internally influential and independent subsets of large entertainment conglomerates.
