Darn Capitalists!

NYTimes to start charging subscription fee for online access to Op-Ed page work starting in September.

$50 a year! That's ridiculous. My Norton Anti-Virus subscription doesn't cost $50 a year. I wonder why they're only charging for Op-Ed work (not news, features, sports, etc.) My guess is because, taking a look from their most e-mailed articles link on the side of their homepage, that the Op-Ed page of their website gets the most traffic. Good thing being on the university's server allows me to use LexisNexis and I can still get this stuff for free.

Hat tip to Amy Welborn.
