The cost of having the Chron delivered is going up – drats! You know something is amiss over at Texas Avenue when the game in San Diego ended at 11:21 pm CDT last night and it didn’t make this morning’s three star edition. It seems like those of us that are old fashioned and still walk out to our driveway every morning to pick up our shrinking daily ought to be given a break for hanging in there.
