... I visit news.google.com.
... It shows me a story that looks interesting.
... I click on the link
... The web site loads, displays the same headline that I saw on news.google.com, and then puts up a pop-up saying that I've reached my article limit and would I like to subscribe?
Nowadays, I just scan news.google.com, and don't bother clicking on most of the links, unless I'm sure that they're to a site, like reuters or cnn or bbc, that isn't going to refuse to show me their article.
I realize that, for the most part, that means that I am that worst of news consumers, the headline-only reader.
So I compromise and I read the entire newspaper once a week, on Sunday.
It seems like not much happens between one Sunday and the next, actually, anyway.
So maybe I'm not missing much.
And I have more time to read books.
And play God of War.
