The W. Times noticed a post Mike wrote for DCist about how their paper was for sale in Billings, Montana – for $2.50 – in their â€śInside the Beltwayâ€? feature in todayâ€™s paper:
Still a bargain
â€śDCist,â€? a popular Web site (www.dcist.com) about everyday life in the
nationâ€™s capital, has posted a photograph from a faithful D.C. tipster
who happened into a Barnes & Noble bookstore while visiting
â€śWhile no other national newspapers aside from USA Today and the Wall
Street Journal have seemed to have made their way to south-central
Montana, just below Shotgun News [on the newspaper rack] is The
Washington Times,â€? the posting notes.
We see by the photograph that a single copy of our newspaper sells for
a rather hefty $2.50 in Billings. Here in Washington, where Pony
Express charges arenâ€™t tacked on, the paper still costs a quarter.
