Ads on the paper

What happened to my newspaper?

The headline used to attract me to the paper. These days, to even read the headline, I first have to peel off the “stick-um” ad on the right side of the paper, then open and pull out the sleeve-type advertisement that covers the entire left half of the front page.

Then I throw those away.

It's kind of like a stink bug sitting on the kitchen counter next to my coffee maker in the morning. I can deal with the bug, but it's one of life's little annoyances that I could do without.

I just want to read the paper and drink my coffee.
