Newspaper reader's winter dilemma
Most days the newspaper will be partially buried in the snow. Some days you'll get lucky and it will land on top of the snow. And some days it will be snowing and only a vague outline, at best, will signal the paper's presence. You know you have to go get it, but it's cold and you decide to read a bit of it online. Then you read some more. Then you check out some favorite blogs and other sources. By the time you finally pick up the physical paper, you've already read everything you want to read, and you wonder -- not for the first time -- why you are still subscribing.
