If that is your cup of tea, keep it out of the blog. That's not what we're after.Hmm, I wonder if that same rule applies with the daily's Barack Obama inauguration edition slated for Jan 21. For the low, low cost of $9.95 the paper is letting readers share their "thoughts and congratulations to this section that will be cherished for many years to come."
