I assume somebody's crying at The Los Angeles Times.
What do you do when you can't give it away? You charge 10 cents/week to look like it's a great deal.
This is simply the best story I've seen all week, and it wasn't even a story. Again, Don caught it. How he catches these things, I have no idea. I think his cat is a co-conspirator. Heaven knows I've sent that cat more tuna than I've bought for myself (and I won't even mention all the bets I've lost to that cat).
Here's the "story" that Don caught. The most liberal newspaper in the USA -- more liberal than The New York Times can now be yours for only ten cents per week. Ten cents per week. Through the end of the year. That's ten cents/week for the next 12 weeks. That's about $1.20 for three months of The Los Angeles Times.
Wow, talk about an embarrassment.
But to get this great deal, you have to:
a) agree to $1.99/week after that (but you are allowed to cancel at any time); and,Okay, I made that part up about reading the front page and not laughing.
b) agree to read the front page and not laugh
Don noted that you can't even get a Starbucks coffee for a buck-twenty.
And, no, not even for a buck-twenty for three months do I plan to subscribe.
I never want to forget:
