Houston Chronicle -- They pulled a big rip-off this week!
My comics are gone! Ten of the ones I have read every day for the last several years.
The Houston Chronicle is having a big belt tightening in its finances. Besides reducing the comics from four pages to two, they have laid off five percent (5%) of their employees. Bad news all around.
This isn't the first time. The worst sin the Houston Chronicle committed was to remove Mrs. Jim's favorite, Kudzu. I'm not sure, but around a year ago, they even removed Kudzu from their Web site (Comics). So I don't trust our Houston Chronicle too much about promises over about comic strips.
Now they say we can still read our favorites on the Web. How long do you think that would take every day? For one dollar ($1.00) a month some sites will e-mail us our favorite comics every day. But they don't have all these nine. Nevertheless I could save about $180 less $12 a year by cancelling the Chronicle and get most of the ones I read via e-mail.
There might even be a Google or Yahoo page that will let me read them all. Right now my Yahoo has three previously cancelled Chronicle comics, In the Bleachers, The Quigmans, and Speed Bump. These are all keepers so I need another place.
On the following: The Chronicle link will have today's (November 14, 2007) comics. None of the King Feature pages will have current comics. The others do except for Denis the Menis.
Even though it's slow pulling them up one by one, the Chronicle on-line now does have the ones I read including those before THE BIG CUT. (link) or (http://www.chron.com/apps/comics/showComics.mpl)
So what would you do? Perhaps you can find a place I get most of my favorites all on one page?
