  • Wow, my subscription expires tomorrow, and I wasn’t planning on renewing. Now I feel less bad about it.

  • Yeah, that’s why I was never interested in paying for Salon. And in recent months, I’ve noticed that everytime I hear someone from Salon being interviewed on NPR, he or she is invariably logorrhetic and full of his or her owm importance. Even NYT authorities are better behaved.

  • It’s just one of the many reasons why I refused to pay for Salon. I do occasionally click on the day visitor so I can read stuff written by my friends though! (Yes, that means you and I did).

  • Yeah, if you look at the number of page views devoted to letters, you begin to see a business model based upon contributors providing free content. You get what you pay for. I’d rather not lend support, financial or otherwise, to that business model; I can deal with clicking through ads to read the wires and War Room.

  • We also serve those who sit and browse.

  • I don’t listen to NPR much: it seems devoted to giving airtime to loons on the left and right, rather than finding the sensible center. The last time I listened, I heard about fifteen seconds of the loathsome Anne Lamott before I could cross the room and change the station.

  • And your friends (yes, that means me) are eternally grateful.

  • That Keillor rant is odd. Maybe he has the experience of not suffering for his art, but why on earth would he insist on omniscience vis a vis other artists’ experience?

    If that’s what they’re peddling on Salon these days, I don’t blame you for opting out.

  • It’s the literary equivalent of “I had to walk five miles to school barefoot in the snow, and so should you.” I can’t help it if Keillor was too stupid to pull on galoshes and board the bus.
