Well, for people who want to read it, anyway. $2.50 for a daily newspaper? Outrageous. The solution is obvious: Congress needs to pass legislation mandating that the NYTimes cost…oh, I dunno, $1 a day? That seems about right.
Unless maybe the strategy is to minimize sales in order to protect trees and the environment? Which may also be why the paper demonizes most of America while lying its assets off about every major issue affecting the country.
But in that case, shouldn’t it just…go away? “All The Noise That’s Fit To Print” made sense when John Q. Public couldn’t get a word in edgewise, but nowadays everybody has a digital megaphone. There’s such a surplus of lies and nonsense that the New York Times is irrelevant. It’s irrelevant, outmoded, obsolete, and counterproductive without even the virtues of style and quaintness.
But of course for once, on the topic of minimum wage, the Times is completely correct. We here at wormme.edu.com.org.net. recommended the perfect minimum wage sixteen months ago. If we were wormme.gov it would already be law. Why shouldn’t everyone make a million dollars a year?
Because price and wage fixing have been employed throughout history and never fail to fail? Bah. The NY Times knows better than history. Which is one of the reasons it is becoming history.
