THE NEW YORK TIMES AND THE INFORMATION THEORY OF THE LEISURE CLASS:  This is my draft, unpublished take on the business-cultural model of the New York Times, from a couple of years ago.  It starts by announcing that Beloved Wife and I finally gave up the home delivered subscription in DC. This did not turn out to be true, married as I am to a True New Yorker.  This, even though it runs something like $800 a year for home delivery, and despite the fact that the editor of the Times’ digital edition, who is an old family friend from our days in New York, expressed disbelief that anyone would pay those rates for out of town home delivery.
