    I am only repeating what I was told this morning over the phone. You are now providing different information which is appreciated. So, to be clear, you are saying that if you already subscribe to a 7 day print subscription you will receive the online version for free? correct? When I called this morning I was informed by your staff that even if you subscribe to 7 days of print version, you will only receive one month free subscription online and then have to pay 12 dollars a month. are you saying that is not correct now?

    Current 7-day print subscribers do not have to pay more, as the digital access is included in the price of your subscription. We are having a bit of an issue this morning that we hope to have remedied soon. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may be causing.

    Online is worth $3 per month, not $10.

    This quarter million dollar, 2 hour "rocket-ride" is about as much "space travel" as a ferris wheel. It goes up a ways; it comes down. You'll get up around 65 miles high for 5 minutes. The moon is 239,000 miles away. Now that, is in "space".

    Sir Richard Barfson and Abu Dhabi are building a spaceport over there where there's more oil than water. New Mexico, you's been played by a two-timing back-stabbing wham-bam thank you maam flim-flam man. Read about it here.
