Some publications have been doing things like jacking up the turkey day edition, which makes casual buyers pay a fair price for cherry-picking. Fair enough. Good idea.

But it flies in the face of logic to try to convert single-copy buyers to loyal subscribers, only to ding them with a series of indignities -- magazines, no-print days and now this.

Basically, it's all a disincentive to buying the print product at all. Good business model.

This is what they are trying to do: force their customers to embrace digital so the PG/BCI can save money. It's why they desperately are trying to fill the Deputy Managing Editor's slot after their great digital heroine decamped to PublicSource.

In the world of Block, the only viable PG is an all digital edition. It may not be very good, but it'll be the only game in town. Their attitude: suck it up, Yinzers. Look at what we give you: sports, the Digs, Beer Me, Power Source and a Sunday Shribman column. You should be thanking us for even giving you a chance to pay extra for holiday print! You might want to bow or curtsey!

Not me.
