A couple things this week – “buyer beware” and no wonder our language is so difficult to learn.
First – “caveat emptor” – Latin for “let the buyer beware.”
It’s not cheap to renew a subscription to The Wall Street Journal.
While new subscribers can sign up for $26 per month (for three months) for both the print and digital edition, the rate increases substantially after that. If, like me, you’ve been a long-time subscriber and it comes time to renew, the newspaper now charges $413 for a year’s subscription. If you want the digital edition, it’s an extra $129.
