I can’t get out this afternoon to pick up a copy of the New York Times.
I get an email from a friend, saying that I just have to read Paul Krugman’s column.
At the site, there is this teaser:
For God’s Sake By PAUL KRUGMAN
Published: April 13, 2007
The infiltration of the federal government by large numbers of people seeking to impose a religious agenda is one of the most important stories of the last six years.
If it’s so important, why can’t I read it?
Well, because Krugman has become one of the New York Times “Select” subscriber-only columns. It costs about $8.00 a month.
Grumble, grumble, boo-hiss.
Here’s a better idea:
Charge twenty-five or less per article. That’s still a lot more than it’s worth (considering how many articles are in the paper, and the cost of an entire paper).
