Finally....a legitimate use for The Dallas Morning News.
If I had a bird, I wouldn't insult it by lining its cage with the Dallas Morning News.
Many years ago Dallas had two daily newspapers, the Morning News and the (afternoon) Dallas Times Herald. The Times Herald eventually closed its doors and the very next day (as I recall) classified advertising rates in the Morning News nearly doubled. Bastards!
With the increasing popularity of internet news, most print newspapers have seen nothing but financial losses in recent years. When the Dallas Morning News let go most of their writers to save a buck, the size of the paper was nearly cut in half....there wasn't much left worth reading. AND the price shot up. AND they lost 20% of their subscribers the next year. Including ME!
I suspect they're staying afloat these days by being the local print and delivery source for a few national papers such as The New York Times and (I believe) The Wall Street Journal. Trouble is, they can't reliably deliver them. Literally half the time K has to call the paper and tell them they missed our delivery. It's an ongoing battle.
I quit! Today we switched our national newspaper subscription to a digital online version only. As I see it, though, I didn't fire the Dallas Morning News. They fired themselves. Good riddance.
