Subject: PG gouging its base again

First it was the glossy throwaway magazines, then no print edition on three holidays, now this.

A letter from the PG came with today's home delivered edition. Buried in the middle of the second (back) page is a lengthy bullet point headed, "Holiday & Bonus days". The upshot is that seven-day subscribers--the foundation of the PG's circulation--will be charged "up to" $30 extra each year for 15 "holiday and bonus editions" ($2 each).

There is no explanation about what a "bonus edition" constitutes, although it looks like they're charging extra for the privilege of receiving piles of advertising circulars, judging by the list of "holiday & bonus days", which includes President's Day, "Good Friday" (for all of you Catholic PG readers), May 27 AND May 31 (!), Columbus Day and Veterans Day.
