Timed Out


Men might not know this rule, but when cleaning out your closets, experts advise you toss anything you haven’t worn in a year.

If I apply the same standard to other aspects of my life – say, how often I read the physical newspaper – it would make sound fiscal advice to cancel my subscription.

I get everything I need online by the time I even make it out the door. The paper just becomes a prop I carry to the office and toss aside for when I have a free moment during the day. I never do, and by early evening, it’s in the recycling bin just as neatly folded as it was when it started its commute.

Apologies to the dying newspaper industry, but it’s time to say goodbye to home delivery of The New York Times.

p.s. I’m totally keeping Sunday. I’m a sucker for the puzzle.
