The Star Tribune here just started limiting you to 20 free articles per month.

Also, I know how to delete cookies in my browsers, so I can reset the counter to 20 whenever I wantThe views expressed in the above post are the sole opinion of the author and do not reflect any official position by the author's employer and/or municipality.

I wouldn't read it anymore. I'd stick with tv news, or radio. Our newspaper sucks, it's not worth paying for.No one has greater love than this, to lay down ones life for ones friends - John 15:13
