A friend reports that when he called the Times-Picayune circulation department today to complain about the 87% increase in the cost of daily home delivery and threatened to cancel his subscription, he was offered a special rate of $12.95 per month for the next six months in appreciation of his status as a long-time subscriber. Compared to the new standard subscription rate of $16.95 per month, this saves him a grand total of $24.00 while the T-P keeps him in their long-term revenue stream. Sounds like a good deal — for the Picayune.
