Seriously? I have to get up, get dressed and go to the store to buy a paper so my Dad can have his coffee and read his "PRINTED" newspaper in the morning when he gets up? Waiting until sometime between noon and 3 pm for the US mail to deliver the paper isn't going to work. And He doesn't do Tablets, he likes his morning PAPER. Well there's more money you're losing because I'll be cancelling. No need for an Afternoon paper. Really nice letter you sent you but you left out how I cancel my subscription. I'm sure that is going to be a FAQ.
