NY Times Advertising Bags

POST #    1194

Has anyone else that gets home delivery of The New York Times get their papers in bags with advertising on them? This weekend was the first time it has happened to me. No more of the distinctive blue bags that are nice and transparent. Now, I've been hit with ads for Eclipse and Lexus.

If this continues, I'll miss the old blue bags, but since I'm behind on my paper reading (so typical), I'll have some lying around. Although...if they are going to give me free samples of Eclipse everyday, I'll take them.

And I think "Drink a latte. Kiss a lot, eh?" would have been better than the current lines of "Drink a latte. Kiss a little."

strangely capitalistic move for such a commie pinko fishwrap.

Why do they even bother using bags, unless it is raining?

I'm always against the idea of store clerks automatically providing plastic bags for anything you buy. I always have to tell them "no bags" and often carry my own cloth bag or throw things in my backpack. It probably won't make a difference, but I always like to do my share for the environment.

it seems like my paper guy always uses at least one bag a day. i think it's because in my area, there are no apartment buildings where you can deposit them in lobbies and the such.
