The “improved” Inquirer

The Philadelphia Inquirer kindly dropped a complementary copy of the “improved” Sunday paper in our driveway. Not having subscribed to the paper in over three years, I wonder what they improved.

The size is a quarter smaller than our last issue (a third smaller than our first), the print quality is so-so, and the comics page has probably half the comics it once had — and the remainder barely merit inclusion. Reading Parade Magazine for the first time in probably two years took less time that brewing a cup of coffee with our Keurig.

That all said, I still miss my paper. Reading on the tablet really isn’t the same. In some ways better, but the experience hardly warrants lounging lazily on a Sunday morning.
