All the News That's Fit to Pay, and Pay, and Pay For

I was travelling through Schiphol airport in Amsterdam today (more later on the various reasons why) when I was delighted to see the Sunday New York Times on sale at the airport news-stand… until they tried to charge me €14.50 (about $20 or £10). It’s still the best paper in the world (especially on Sunday), but the 400% markup seems a bit steep (not to mention encouraging the waste of transporting these newspapers thousands of miles across the world).
