Last night at CVS, the counter was filled with copies of a glossy Rangers magazine/yearbook that included the results of the ALCS. All the photos were credited to the AP, none of the stories carried a byline, and the fine print said the whole thing was produced in New Jersey. (“New Jersey?!? Get a rope.”) I would have picked up a copy to show Tim and Wick, but the $7.99 cover price was a bit steep.
And this morning at Arapaho Center Station, a guy standing near the ticket machines was hawking a special World Series edition of the Morning News. I’ve never seen a human selling newspapers at a DART station. The price point was much more aggreable this time: 50 cents.
