What Am I To Do?

The New York Times finally created their premium section which means that I can't read their columnists anymore unless I pay. Obviously I am not going to pay money to read David Brooks or John Tierney. What's more interesting though is the idea that people will pay for this. The Times seems to believe that it's columnists are so good that people will pay for them and that their product is so excellent that they can have a premium section, claims that I find debatable.

Bigger question is, what conservatives am I going to read now? Do I have to go into conservative blogs? I think I'd rather swallow poison. Though I'd rather do that than pay $50 a year to read Brooks and Tierney.
