I read the print edition for 42 years. First purchasing at the newsstand and later with a subscription. Always took a two year subscription. The last time it came up for renewal the price for one year was more than double what I'd paid for two years the last time around. I was going to drop it completely but they convinced me to try the online edition. I'd rather hold a newspaper to read it. I get much more out of it but I gave it a try. This year the renewal for the online edition took a huge jump. I was going to drop it but decided to call and ask what their best price was. They renewed me at the old rate. This could well be my last year though if they don't give me the same deal again. Murdock is a greedy SOB! With so many online resources I think I can learn to live without WSJ.

As an aside, it will be interesting to see what they do if the post office actually drops Saturday delivery. That will make the much ballyhooed Saturday edition just bird cage liner for many subscribers.
