Out here in the hinterlands, a housemate has decided not to renew their subscription to
the Sunday Chronicle, as the price as risen to $5.75 a paper ($75 for 13 weeks), delivered.
They can still tootle out to the local convenience store and pick one up for $3.30, tax included.

What are people in, and closer to, the big city paying for Sunday Chronicle delivery?

I agreed that rate was pretty steep, given the same delivery person also handles the BANG
papers (Murky News, etc.), the NYT, and (I think) the WSJ -- so the presumably lower subscription
density shouldn't be a big factor.
We are old-timers who still get daily delivery.  I'm embarrassed to report the monthly fee is 102.80.  Way too much.
Don't stand in the way of LOVE!

I haven't seen Tom Stienstra's outdoors column in the Sunday Chronicle for several weeks.  Anybody
know why it's been missing?
