New York Times has thinned down today. No, not fired the entire editorial staff but cut-off an inch and a half horizontally off the newsprint. I am not crazy about. I know the Wall Street Journal also did it earlier this year but I was hoping the Times would hold off. But no. The pressure of commerce is just too much I guess -- enough to squeeze the life out of the erstwhile newsprint. I personally detest it. I get the feel of reading a tabloid.
