I can't wait!

My household was anxious about the NYT down-sizing this morning as well, but we weren't about to make any judgments since our thinner paper never even arrived. The missing column in the opinions section is sure to be a disappointment.

I don't know, NYT. In the past week you've increased your price, reduced your size, and missed several deliveries. This isn't a very good way to keep a dying business alive.

Does this mean we can still have room for those shitty comics on the last page aaaannnd the brilliance that is Sir Adrian! Ryan?! (Who has been cast out for no apparent reason.)

Does this mean I can now read Savage Love without wondering if people walking by think I'm looking for anonymous sex in a free local rag?

I noticed that this morning when I was reading the NYT. Totally love the new look and it is easier to read on the bus as well. YEAH!!! ((dancing on the bus!))

There's a print edition? live and learn.

I would like the Stranger to be Reader's Digest size in order to make it easier to read in the can.

5: I hope you are joking. While that isn't funny, if you are serious, that is the stupidest shit I have ever heard.

Of course The Peanut Gallery is joking. Are you a retard?

I hate change.

Any date set on the launch of the new Stranger design?

People still read newspapers? What a waste of paper.

Posted by Ryan | August 6, 2007 1:50 PM

it wasn't clear if he was joking, because it was not funny. not even remotely charming. just stupid either way. i think you are retarded. the end.

@3 - i had to agree with Mr. Poe about that last one. Sometimes, frankly, I'd rather not have to spend 3 minutes flipping thru "adult" ads to get to my favorite sections.

Audrey @12:

it wasn't clear if he was joking

I wish you were joking.  That's almost as clueless as you suspect The Peanut Gallery @5 of being.

Yes, some us still read the paper. I NEED the paper. I think I get something delicious from the ink that wiggles it's way through the tips of my fingers into my boodstream. It's best served with lots of coffee.

It felt weird to me, like a novelty NY Times as opposed to the real thing.

If you would follow 6's suggestion, and also add a hole in the corner to hang it by, like the Farmer's Almanac, and then print the thing on toilet paper, it could serve a dual function.
