REGISTRATION….I’m really tired of registering with online newspapers. Apparently Knight Ridder recently decided to require registration, and you have to register separately with every single one of their papers. What’s more, a slew of other newspapers have also decided to require registration within the past week or two. Is it something in the water?

Can charging for content be far behind? I hope not. It would be the end of the blogosphere.

The Washington Monthly was founded in 1969 to tell the stories of how government really works—and how to make it work better. Fifty years later, the need for incisive analysis and new, progressive policy ideas is clearer than ever. As a nonprofit, we rely on support from readers like you.
