Weekend Reading: Paywalls

The only way to get the real news on our government is through subscription-only, insider-only publications. Which is to say that you, the ordinary citizen, do not get to see it.

Remember Clive James fondly (even if, for myself, I am less fond of rhyming poetry than he is).

I know this homeless camp and think what is happening is a shame and a tragedy. All you need to do is pass by to see that it is community, not just a random squatting ground.
