    Whether right or wrong, it's the most rational explanation I've seen, other than they are working for Al Queda:

    I don't think profit was the utmost priority they had in mind on this one, Kathianne. ;)

    I agree with Ann Coulter that it is too bad that The Times building was not targeted by Al Quada on 9/11/01. Maybe it would have ended their misery once and for all.

    I haven't bought a newspaper in more than 2 1/2 years. I don't have to. I can read all the news on the internet for free. The New York Times site requires registration, but I've never had to register there to read articles from the NYT. If I read about an article, or someone posts a link to an article at the New York Times, I just Google the author, or a few key words, and I can usually find it posted on a site that doesn't require registration.

    I can find everything online. News. My favorite columnists. The comics even.

    Although the down side of that is not having anything to read in the bathroom.

    Excellent find, Kathianne! That says it all right there. Expresses my sentiments about the NYT exactly.

    Since Al Qaeda, and other terrorist operators, have long since abandoned traditional financial institutions in favor of hawala or other underground banking systems, the answer would have to be "No."

    It's simply another example of the Bush Administration attempting to set itself above the law and outside of the purview of Congressional oversight.
