Selective reading

If your not fortunate enough to write off your Times Select subscription on your tax return, and you frown at not being able to read folks like Bill Rhoden, Nicholas Kristof and Bobby Hebert, (no, not this Bobby Hebert) thanks to the folks at Philips, is offering its Times Select content for free ninety-nine.

Free ninety-nine?!!

I didn't think making people pay for columns and archives was a smart move, but if Philips is willing to foot the bill for a week it must be working.

Turns out you can access select articles from as far back as 1851. I know, I know, you're dying to see the headline from the March on Washington. It reads, "200,000 March For Civil Rights in Orderly Washington Rally; President Sees Gain for Negro."

Okay, maybe they should have kept that one out.
