Communities without newspapers

I'm thinking about starting a newspaper, maybe in a few years. So I am looking for communities without newspapers. Please tell me about the largest such one(s) you know of, about how many people are there, and anything else about the area that might help me decide.

Cartooning

I've always wondered how cartoonist create their strips. But I've started to notice that many of them choose simple body shapes and repeat expressions or only use a few settings or locations. Where can I read a straightforward explanation about the how and why of the creative process for making cartoons?

Alternative newspaper history

I am interested in speaking with people involved with the underground newspaper Dragonseed (or Dragon Seed), published in Baltimore and/or Timonium, MD, around 1972-1973. (No, I am not looking for folks involved with Dragonseed Harry.) Most of the contributors used only first names or pseudonyms. What would be the best way to get the word out about this? I was thinking about an ad in the City Paper, but I'm not sure people actually read ads like that.

How were newspapers sold in London in the 19th century?

I know that NYC had newsboys --aka "newsies," but was it the same in England? Were British papers sold only by shops and subscription or did they have an equivalent to kids/adults hawking them on the street? Primarily interested in the years 1850-1900. Thanks!

What publications give solid advantages in which lines of work when read regularly? A few examples might be McKinsey when read by HR managers, A List Apart when read by designers, Hacker News when read by programmers, and Poynter when read by journalists. What else is there in these fields and in others that puts a person ahead?

Help with hiring someone to collect data from afar

I need about ten years of weekly advertisements placed in the classifieds section of an upstate, popular alternative newspaper. I've called around, and I cannot get the newspapers through inter library loan at my university. I cannot get the ads directly from the newspaper either, and I've exhausted every possible channel to do so. I think I am going to have to hire someone off of Craigslist, but I've never done this before, and would like some advice so that I ensure I get this to me in the most efficient format, at the lowest possible cost, without errors. I could use some advice on all aspects of the logistics of planning this, from start to finish. The project is important, and I have attention deficit disorder predominantly inattentive, which I think is why I've simultaneously procrastinating and over thinking this. I have a lot of questions, as you'll see. [more inside]

Can you help me find this article?

Last year I read an article online - I think in one of the quality US dailies - about how a significant number of babies die each year by being accidentally left in the back seat of cars while their parents ran errands. The point was that people are capable of remarkable, unintentional absentmindedness. Google has failed me in my attempts to find it - does anyone recall it/have a link?

Some more 30s New York questions: Would a police detectve in 1930s New York be a uniformed or a nonuniformed role? In the 30s would there be such a thing as plainsclothes police outside of the feds?
