    Same, I'm a collector of rare or old books.

    One of my prizes is a 1908 John Burroughs Leaf and Tendril in superb condition. I read them too, not just storing them in some case or sleeve.

    The cost of holding those stories on a server is very low and the bandwidth to display it is also low.

    Back when paper news was the thing, papers cost as much as $1.00 for Sunday paper which accompanying advertising, paid for salary, printing costs, delivery etc.

    WSJ (as an example) charges up to $32 a month for subscription - after an introductory 12-week rate at $1 per week - and it covers the same costs, minus printing.
    We desperately need LOCAL investigative reporters. The national media chain that bought the Plain Dealer seems to have tried everything to keep the paper alive, and at this point, so many reporters, columnists and editors have left, it really isn't a functional paper anymore.

    I would be happy to pay to subscribe to a local or regional magazine that actually employs investigative reporters.

    If we have none, corruption here will literally kill this city.
    Thanks from MeBelle

    For some reason several other posters here seem to believe they should get their news for free. If you don't pay anything for the news, why do you think you deserve anything other than fake or biased news? True, you might buy products advertised in the "free" media but, in that case, your content may be tilted in some way by the advertisers who pay the bill.
    Thanks from Madeline

    Sweet! I'll do that when I feel like restarting Chrome, which isn't right now. Do I correctly assume with the restart Chrome will still remember all my open tabs?
