A familiar dichotomy plays out on very rainy days at the N4N manse: the delivery of a moist, if not sopping wet, ProJo, along with a pleasantly dry New York Times.
How does the Times do it? They put two plastic bags on the paper, rather than just one, and from two different directions, creating an effective seal. Simple.
Why doesn't the ProJo do this? I imagine I'm not alone in getting a wet paper, and it's not as if readers need more encouragement to ditch the print subscription and read the paper online instead.
