Great! But if you don't read a real newspaper you miss these things.

One of the problems of trying to read a newspaper on an electronic device is that you miss stuff by not just turning the pages one after another. Now, you select the topics of greatest interest and just look at that. And even then you scroll through the headlines, which seem to have become increasingly misleading in the Times, and you still miss things. And God forbid that something in one subject area might touch upon something relative to interests but not included where you think it should be. Plus, it takes LONGER to get through these all these various topics than just going from one page to another. If the printed version didn't cost nearly $2000 a year, I'd go back to paper.

And, by the way, now that TimeOutNY and the NYTimes no longer provide comprehensive -- or nearly comprehensive -- lists of wheat is going on in NYC, from lectures to off-beat theatre to book signings, concerts,exhbitions etc -- how do you find out what is in town? Rumor? Word of mouth? Is there any single comprehensive source that is reliable? I know that I am missing things of interest. I can't just sign up for email alerts from every POSSIBLE place that might POSSIBLY have something interesting going on.

We are in the Dark Ages.
