Ever sinced I moved here, I’ve been a hit-or-miss LA Times subscriber. For some reason I can’t seem to break the habit of having a newspaper on Sunday morning. I think it came from my mom; she always sent me up the street on Sundays to grab a paper from the machine, as well as a dozen donuts from Winchell’s. But too often I don’t have the time to get to it and the whole thing ends up going in the recycling bin, unopened. Whenver the guilt over all those dead trees builds to an unacceptable level, I cancel. Then a few Sundays and holidays pass without that giant slab of adds and silly filler and I start to get nostalgic and end up resubscribing. The cycle begins anew. Since I’m currently in the subscribed state of that cycle, I didn’t think I’d have a problem with the paid content requirement that everybody is always talking about. But as it turns out, I went to serach for something today and discovered that the paid content is is available to 7-day subscribers only. I only get home delivery Friday through Sunday, so I’m still locked out. I guess their thinking is probably that I don’t have access to the print edition all week, so I shouldn’t have access to the digital one all week. Curses! Google News here I come…again.
