New York Times Exploring how to Charge for Content

> "The people's rant"

very funny. It breaks down as 'volks' (indeed, people's) and 'krant' (from 'courant', cf. 'current'). It's a very good newspaper; I'd say, based on events past and present, easily better than the New York Times.

We're blessed with three very good news papers in Holland (Volkskrant, NRC, Trouw), which is in fact quite a lot, considering our population of only 16 M. I wonder how long they'll be able to keep up, with readships dwindling etc.
