Re: so are you going to pay for online news journal access
I stand corrected, Chase. As well, I think it's a dumb-ass move on their part. I read the paid online edition daily. It's fast-moving, pop-up free, and easy as hell to navigate. If local management at TNJ thinks a 5-article test drive of their free online edition is going to entice people to pay full freight, they're sadly mistaken.

If they're really using this as a SAMPLE of the paid online edition, WOW, I'm speechless. They need to improve things considerably if they're going to use it as a teaser for the real thing.
Even if the pessimists are right, in the end, the optimists will have had a much more enjoyable trip through life.
