So, in 2011, the New York Times is going to start charging for online content.

They're "trying to get it right," after their dismal failure with TimesSelect.

If the price is right, it wouldn't be a bad thing. I'd like the Times to survive.

But this is the newspaper that wanted to charge me $91.00 a year for the fryin' Book Review.

I have no confidence that they will paywall in a way that isn't extortionate.

And that will probably mean farewell to the Paper of Record.

I suppose the loss of comforting things from the past is just part of growing older. Still, it's hard to see it happen.
