    Tony, you're just too fussy. One reason they may do it is that is they have nothing to say and hope they can hide the fact?

    I live in Sweden. I have a very advantageous, efficient airmail subscription to the American Time magazine. I am really satisfied, yet .... sometimes I feel like cancelling the whole thing. And why? Because Time sometimes use small typefaces in hard to read colours, often small, pastel colours, even light grey, which is impossible to read. One day I will be so irritated I will cancel for sure. If the industry is in crisis, why do they persist with these easily addressable mistakes at the risk of losing faithful customers?

    USA today used to be the perfect quick read for a 20-minute bus ride to work - and they used to have good track & field coverage while Dick Patrick was around.

    Indeed. My ADD demands it.

    I value Cultural (sic) Literacy (it's actually a requisite of my job) and USAT covers that better and more succinctly than anyone else. Time is a close second.

    People actually read USA Today every day? The only time I look at it is when it is outside the door on the floor in the morning at a hotel.

    And I have never been to their web site so anyone is welcome to my 20 visits.
