a little more info...

A few of you may wonder about my disrespect of the local daily news. Actually, Indy's dad worked there for over a year and they treated him not very well. BUT, that isn't the reason we don't like the paper. We decided to order the daily paper a few months ago. Actually, I decided to order it and whined until Chris gave in (which is why I really hate them... Because he was right, I hate when he is right). We gave the paper our bank card number and they sent us home with a newspaper and a promise to deliver more starting the very next day! Four days later I had yet to receive a paper and the "democrap" herald had removed money from our bank three times. Needless to say we were furious. It took the "democrap" herald just over 2 weeks to refund our money. I received one newspaper. Now, occasionally someone will be handing the daily out for free up at the grocery, soliciting subscriptions. That's how we got the paper in this photograph, which Indiana happily shredded and ate.

I don't remember things like your story happening years ago....Now, everything is like this....No follow through; they take your money and you get nothing...Do you think it has to do with not caring anymore and not taking pride in 'service'??? We are in deeeeeep trouble with this kind of an attitude by the buisnesses that want our business and good will...
They sure don't deserve it or our loyalty, either.

We recently discontinued the local paper, but for different reasons than you talked about. The truth is many newspapers are experiencing declining rates of subscription.

BTW does Indy prefer the colorful taste of the funnies page?

There's nothing good in the newpapers anyway... just bad news... so why not shred & eat it!!!!

Gee: That looks like the same nameplate they had in 1948-52 when I worked there. How times don't change.
