No Journal Times in your driveway this morning?
Some kinda trouble at the Journal Times, not any (announced) experiment with cost-cutting. Whatever the cause -- cold, ice, poor driving conditions? -- there were a lot of missed papers today.
Here's what we were told when we spoke to a harried customer service rep shortly after 9 a.m.:
"We've had over 400 calls this morning. He's not going to be able to deliver you a paper."
Oh, sure; we'll get a credit on our bill. But what about today's Sudoku and Horoscope? And what do I tell the puppy?
