Roy Johnson, in his review of Nicholas Negroponte's book, said:
>In fact the book is produced on paper of such poor
>quality that you can read the print on both sides at once. [It's not
>clear if this is a high-tech device or an ironic comment from the
>publishers.]

And then Jim Grey commented:
>This is probably a function of currently outrageously high paper prices.
>The cost of paper has shot up since last fall, slicing publishers' margins,
>if you'll pardon me, paper-thin.

About which I explain:
Sure, paper prices have risen, as have the prices of wood products in
general, including wood-frame houses. But look on the bright side. Many
more spotted owls now have trees to live in. And many fewer loggers are
faced with the prospect of engaging in their dangerous profession; they
can now collect miniscule unemployment checks instead.


Live long & prosper,
