I had noticed that the newsstand price of the Cleveland Plain Dealer has gone to 75 cents per copy. I figure it's the price we pay for technology. As more and more go to the internet for their news, less rely on the more traditional means of news. Less people buy the paper and less see the advertisements. Ad revenue goes down. so those who still use the daily paper for their news fix have to now pay more in order to be able to get a paper.
I take a paper into work but others read it. Only thing I really read is the comics. And most of the time, the paper I take into work is the Akron Beacon Journal. I can remember when the price of a daily paper was 15 cents.
I can also remember when it only cost a dime to use a pay phone. Now it's 50 cents. But not many use pay phones today. The biggest problem that poses is where does Superman go to change if there aren't any phone booths?
