This blog is mainly about the spectacular train wreck at The Sacramento Bee and its parent company, the McClatchy Company. But I also post about current events, the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, politics, anything else that grabs my attention. Take a look around this blog, hope you enjoy it.

Some newspapers institute a price hike for Thanksgiving
Story here. The KC Star says "Thank you!" to subscribers on Thursday by raising the price of a single copy from 75 cents to $2 a copy. The Star will charge regular subscribers $1.25 for that day's paper. . . .
Ahahahahahahaha, that's funny, stop it, you've got to be joking.
It's about time newspapers starting charging customers extra for the Thanksgiving paper. It is loaded with the ads readers want and they should be paying extra for all the savings they will reap from the sales at the stores.
Anon 7:01 WOW you’re so right. I’ve never thought of that!
Gosh darn it, I’m going to put Thanksgiving on hold and just wait till McCrappy sells its Thanksgiving paper with all those valuable coupons.
Then and only then, with just a few hours before the big meal, will I use all those valuable coupons to buy what I need for Thanksgiving...2010.
Who in their right mind waits till Thanksgiving day to buy all the things they need to prepare a meal from scratch?
I can see how it might work for you as you probably celebrate "Happy Kwanzit"
Anon 7:01 I think I understand you know
I am plagiarizing but, “I wonder what these soon to be unemployed folks with those valuable journalism and English degrees are going to do to radicalize the fast food industry.”
Your Thursday dinner is being celebrated at McDonalds
7-11 better tack on their own handling charge. I got a feeling that a whole lot of copies are going to hit the counter and be left behind along with a few choice words.
Quick Trip employees getting off will look like zombies mumbling, "$2.00 F(*K That!", over and over again.
dumb and dummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmer!
Anon 7:53 ever herad of Black Friday. That's what the ads are all about. The Thanksgiving paper is full of them. I hope you're smarter than your post.
In Tacoma Washington, I could have purchased the MNI owned News Tribune for $2, or the Seattle Times with even MORE inserts for 75 cents. Glad the Times was available at a reasonable price. Good thing MNI has written off their 49% ownership of the Seattle Times. They obviously are all a bunch of idiots.
