In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

The WSJ's Regional News Stand Pricing

Donald Pittenger writes:

Dear Blowhards --

You can learn a lot by traveling.

One thing I learned on my recent trip to the Mountain States is that The Wall Street Journal's news stand price there is $2, rather than the $2.50 it is here in the Puget Sound area.

I paid the two bucks in Wyoming and southern Idaho, but maybe that price isn't universal twixt the coast and the plains; I wonder about Denver and Albuquerque.

Rupert Murdoch is indeed a sly fox.

Later,

Donald
