Free the Times
Finally, the local paper is free. The New York Times announced it will drop its pay-to-view-Times Select articles tonight at midnight. They now have 13 million unique visitors a month, just 12,999,999 more than PiggyBankBlues, and did not foresee the amount of traffic coming from places like Google and Yahoo search engines. The increased traffic means increased ad clicks, and now I can finally read the op-ed page for free while someone else just clicked over to the St. Regis.
