  1. On charging more for tv week and Sunday extra is not good idea. My wife and I aren’t working and the paper is a luxury item. Can’t afford the extra money. If we do pay the extra money, there will be less money or no tip for delivery person, sorry.

  2. What! You are still chipping away at my paper? You’ve taken the Parade and now the T.V. section. The paper is almost non-existant now! Think this one over.
