Oh, come on, Moe, give the Merc a break. They're desperate. Do you really want to help to kill newspapers? What's it costing you now, 5 bucks a month? Where the hell else are you going to get local news for 5 bucks a month ... or for any price? I had another friend ask me recently why the Merc isn't focusing on national/world news anymore. Why would they? That news is precisely the news that the web dumps on its readers a day before they can pull it and publish it on paper. Their space has changed. A local newspaper has become again what a local newspaper has always been: a purveyor of local news. That's worth 5 bucks a month to me ... and, it's nice to walk out to the end of the driveway, bring in the paper, and review it while I brew coffee for the little woman. It's one of the few times I can separate myself from my computer. Then, I go back online and get all the depressing world news that guts my soul each day.

Is it any wonder that there's still some sustenance in the daily paper?

    What do you get when you apply the engineer's mind to the kitchen? Straightforward, practical recipes and tips and a passion for simplifying without sacrificing quality.
