Just curious....

Ray, I'm just curious: Do you subscribe to paper versions of the Economist, WSJ, and NY Times? Or do you read any of them online?

I actually see internet versions as less labor intensive. The sites I like are on my links bar, and once there, I can click on the headlines that interest me. No offense, but that way I'm able to skip things like the police blotter, editorial opinions I don't care anything about, articles about medical offices new to the area that just "happen" to be across the page from a paid advertisement of the same, etc.

It's kind of like the difference between using an on-screen channel guide on my TV as opposed to the old method of flipping through the channels one by one. And the fact that I can skip past commercials (or ignore banner ads) just makes it that much better!
