Take a Trip Down Memory Lane (a toll road) With TimesSelect.


Apparently (finally) realizing that Tommy Friedman and Mo Dowd just ain't worth 50 bucks a year to the pedestrian paper-reading public, the New York Times has repositioned their pay-to-play TimesSelect feature as a shiny time traveling machine. On the surface, a seemingly somewhat smart move. But then you think for a sec; do I really want to pay extra to be able to go back and read what the Times had to say about miniskirts or Punk Rock or Leave It To Beaver or the Treaty of Versailles? No. No, I don't. But you, you go right ahead and sign up and then pepper your future party conversations with borrowed tidbits of boringness.

previous TimesSelect posts:
1. All The Money We Can Fit In Our Pockets.
2. Tommy, I think about Sex. A LOT.
3. TimesSelect Op-Ed Intimacy Series, Part II.

Well say what you want, but Elvis Mitchell wrote a very poignant review of Encino Man back in '92.

I'm subscribing right now. I've been wondering where I could find the info I needed on miniskirts, minimum wage, dada, and madonna all in one place.

(If there are no articles on any of these four topics I'm going to be a very hurt consumer.)

I still have the Times from 9/12/01. That was and still is a fucked up edition.
