Cycling in Sydney Australia
I assume this is what Michael O is talking about:
Do people still buy newspapers?
I have a subscription. : )
Our (somewhat cheap) 7 days for 1/2 year for about 80$ ran out this week.
Any good sub deals to ask around or will I have to go offshore?
Dunno ... despite what some have suggested, I don't work in marketing or subscriptions.
But my best suggestion would be to phone or email those office-bearers up and ask them for a deal to match your last deal. See what happens.
I like this ad for The Guardian which embraces online and print
''There was no victim in my particular Australian crime and if I had paid the levy, as you demanded, I would have conceded that I was responsible to the many victims who require assistance from the compensatory fund.''
Perhaps, but there is a possibility of this transaction being 'on the record' should someone want to look up her history at a later date.
I don't think I'd like my name listed next to 'Victims of Crime Levy' particularly if it doesn't specify what crime ti was that was committed to require its imposition (an important point) - it's clearly a levy (mandatory) and not a charitable donation.
On a similar note, the US 'Sex Offenders Register' does not specify what the crime was (teenage indiscretion or actual sexual assault). When a member of the public looks them up on this register this information is not present and the restrictions applied to individuals do not discriminate. I read a very interesting article in The Economist magazine on this subject a while ago and was horrified to discover this.
You want to be very careful where your name ends up...
