Today being saturday ?
Sunday is much worse. Last time at my local shoppe, I counted
47 separate "papers" for what was nominally one paper. These
were nested to a max depth of 4 levels !
I remember reading a comic yonks ago about a paper-boy who
bemoaned that "sundays are getting heavier; even the supplements
have supplements today !".
This is now so true it's untrue. I've taken to leaving about 90% of the
paper at the shop.
Do they have this in the US ? Being as paper-youths seem to just throw
them into the front garden(yard) from a moving bicycycle, do they use
some form of shoulder-mounted missile (pronounced "mistle") launcher ?
.. and is it really illegal to deliver newspapers into peoples' mailboxes
(so says Norm) ?
