How am I doing, now having gone two weeks without reading any editorials or op-eds in The New York Times? Have I suffered any withdrawal symptoms, any detox shakes, any sleepless nights? Is it really possible for the news & opinion masochist to go 14 days without Herr Krugman or Madame Dowd? Has “Times Select” put a crimp in my already-crimped blog?
Nope. I’m doing just fine, thank you.
The only thing different after two weeks is that I realize now just how gladly I’d pony up $50 a year for the NYT’s news content.
