Don’t cry for me

Violin music: Media Life Magazine reports on a magazine subscription price comparison website (I think I blogged it when it launched, but it’s not showing up on my search) and says traditional circulation marketers don’t like it one little bit. This reminds me of the lawyer who defended a young man who murdered his parents by begging the jury to pity the defendant because he was an orphan. This is a bed those publishers have made for chickens to come home to roost in. (I feel sure there are some more metaphors I can mix in there.)
