Newspapers always excite curiosity. No one ever lays one down without a feeling of disappointment.
Charles Lamb (1775–1834), essayist
Sam Zell, the new owner of the Los Angeles Times, has already proven a disappointment by agreeing to cut more reporters, and now has plans to reduce the number of reporters in Washington.
I decided that if news coverage is going down, then the price I pay for the newspaper should be reduced accordingly. I called 1-800-LATIMES and told them I was going to cancel my subscription and they transferred me to a special operator who immediately reduced my rate from $3.99 per week to $2.80 per week for 26 weeks. I asked what happens after 26 weeks, she said to call back and they will place me on another promotion.
