According to RedEye, the median age of its readers is 35, which means that for every reader who’s younger than that there’s another who’s older. It’d be interesting to know how young they go. And how old.

I asked the guy who hands out RedEye at a north-side el station I use what sort of people seem especially happy to get it. High school kids, he said. And seniors.

The audience on the fixed-income side of 35 could spike, thanks to Governor Blago’s proposal to let seniors ride the CTA for nothing. A free newspaper to look at during a free spin around the Loop — what a pleasant way to while away a morning.
