    Oh my stars and garters.

    The tiny little presses broke down.

    I’ve been meaning to point this out and it always slips my mind…

    Remember three weeks ago when we liked the Dispatch?

    Are you using the “royal we”?

    Lines were busy when I tried to complain about no paper on my porch this morning. Had to “privately browse” to see the website (even to try to report a service problem).
    Wouldn’t even categorize then as irrelevant if there is no way to see the friggen’ thing.

    I bet they’re having production problems again today. No paper, busy signal on the service line. I bet they’d be sympathetic if I had a problem producing payment for home delivery.

    Twice this week no paper. I think the transition to the new format in a couple weeks is rocky.

    But at least it’s worth getting charged for yesterday’s news to not be delivered, because we are transitioning to a “Smarter Format”.
    I wish I wasn’t so set in my ways.

    Only the Dispatch would be 2.5 hours late on election day. Sheesh.
