I Finally Said It
I've heard the same comment five or six times at the Starbucks on Pacific Street in Santa Cruz, each time from a different barrista.
"Five bucks? That's a lot for a newspaper!"
Today, instead of smiling weakly and obediently proceeding to the dark corner near the bathroom where we wait for our caffeine, I replied, "Three dollars is a lot for a cup of coffee. And the Sunday New York Times lasts all day."
Then tipped, smiled, and proceeded to the dark corner.

That's why I read my Sunday NY Times at the Public Library! (too bad they're still in the '90s and won't let me bring in my coffee)
