The Slice

One reason to buy The New York Times

Because the daily New York Times costs $2.50, I am routinely asked by cashiers how a newspaper can be worth that much.

I used to say something like “Well, I guess it depends on how much information is worth to you.”

That didn't always resonate. So I have new answer.

“The national obituaries.”
