    Well, it seems that hasn't changed much for some newspapers!

    I give SnarkShark credit for an appropriate thread title.

    Hhahahah well the first one had a link to the second one, which had a link to the third one. Or something. They were all interlinked. I didn't do like multiple searches to find them. :D

    This is the industry that never came up with a vending machine that didn't allow you to pay for one and take them all. For some reason the people in charge never valued the product.

    There's a whole reason behind that that makes total sense from an economic standpoint. If they wanted or needed to create a vending machine that dispensed a single paper, they could have easily done so. If you can't see why it wasn't necessary, then that's not the newspaper industry's fault. Nice snide comment, but pretty ignorant of reality.

    Lighten up, man. It was a joke. Not the second sentence so much, but the newspaper box thing.
