Even free this paper bugs me.
Thanks for making my day. The Err-I-Go-Again is such rubbish, they couldn't pay me to read it. Plus, they phone blitz me about 5 times a week with subscription pitches.
Even the Willamete Week is less offensive. At least they don't pretend to represent mainstream opinion.

It is a real shame, but they also bought up the Hillsboro Argus
and that used to be such a nice conservative newspaper and now their editorials are getting downright liberal.
Had to cancel that newspaper too
Thank God for Free Republic

Yeah, but I've found a way to have a bit of fun when they call me. I let them make their pitch, then I pause a bit, as if I'm puzzled, and then say, "Why would I need the Oregonian? I don't have a parrot." There's usually a pause while the wheels turn for awhile, then a "Oh. Maybe some other time."
