14. I tend to buy from the newsstand.

I probably should subscribe, but they dropped the print version of the local paper we took (the Seattle Post-Intelligencer), and only kept its far more conservative counterpart, the Seattle Times, in print. We nevertheless subscribed to that for a while, too, but delivery became an increasing problem, and when we were forced to move to an apartment, almost impossible. They barely got it to the outside of our (locked) entry, and we were paying for about half the copies we actually received.

It's maddening that we have a ton of millennials in our building and all their frou-frou Blue Apron and Chewy and Amazon Prime stuff gets delivered, but the paper doesn't (and I don't think the people who deliver it care about getting it to us, either).

Now I'm noodling over what to do about this. I like a print version of whatever paper.
