A dilemma that has nothing to do with tomatoes.

One of the papers that carries my column has started to charge readers for access to their web page. Some of the people who read my stuff have found it through the internet and are now faced with the decision of whether it’s worth paying to read.  I’m not going to get into that debate  although I suspect that somewhere down the road, all newspapers are going to have to find a new business model if they are going to survive. 

I have had a sugggestion that I should just post my column here where people can get to it.  I am hesitating to do this because I may want to put them in yet a third book and who would want to buy another book of stuff they’ve already read.

Also, I do feel a camaraderie with the fourth estate and I feel that I would only be contributing to their problem if I did post it here. 

What to do? What to do?? I think I’ll just take the dog for another walk.
