Friday, May 11–Readers, or would-be readers, who have been faithfully dropping in since last Wednesday to see if the alleged editor had followed up yet on last week’s threat to further defend the innocent noun “chickenhawk,” will be disappointed.
He has been attempting instead, with what little time could be spared from the preparation of the May 18 paper, to make our online subscription system function. So far he has failed.
Rather than take the same route as the Tourmaline’s Chief Engineer, or abandon online sales altogether, he has cooked up an alternative: a downloadable .pdf file of the Subscription Form that runs in the real paper. Now anyone who wishes can click here to download a copy of the Subscription Form, print it out, fill it in, and mail it to us — along with their check for $20, of course.
Yes, you actually save a whopping $2, because we don’t get gouged by the credit card companies.
