As we reported over the weekend it would do, the Times announced today that it will switch to a metered pay system for its website. "Starting in early 2011, visitors to NYTimes.com will get a certain number of articles free every month before being asked to pay a flat fee for unlimited access," Times writer Richard Pérez-Peña wrote this morning. "Subscribers to the newspaper’s print edition will receive full access to the site."
Gee, I wonder why that would be - perhaps a realization that the gang of Nazi bankers that appoints our "leaders," and has been trying to destroy civilization since the dawn of scientific consciousness, isn't going to let us have a recovery. If you think we're going to rebuild Haiti, I've got a bridge you might want to buy. We can't even build a nuclear power plant or an elevated maglev rail system, although "green" (dark age) technology has been sprouting like mushrooms despite the lack of an admissible reason.
