Newspapers!!


I finally got my newspaper rack in. I now carry the finest pubs on the rack. I got all the finer local rags from the Whirl to the Post and all in between. I also picked up subscriptions to the New York Times and Wall Street Journal. You can read them everyday on the newspaper sticks. I encourage anyone to come in and leave your favorite periodical.

I noticed the Post tried to pull a stunt by putting in a "special advertising section" in the paper with what appeared to be fake articles on Friday. It was an "Education for Life" titled section. I didn't get a chance to check the sources, but I am almost certain it was all non-content advertising that looked like articles. They tried to pull that a few years ago with their Reader's Choice Awards in the Get Out section. It was a travesty. I complained about the fix with I assume many others so they changed to to the Advertising Department's Reader's Choice Award. They have since scrapped that type of fake poll and now do a normal one.

Great idea; I'm surprised other establishments don't do the same. I don't know of many places where you can go from the Whirl to the NYT all in one stop!
