    You have to have an account with the paper to read the link, but I assume it was a good one. I second the previous "they want $$ first."

      Assume? And $$ for getting info for one lousy article? That's like a merchant who wants to charge me for the paper just for LOOKING at the front page headlines while holding the paper in my hand for a few seconds without even flipping a page.That's greed. Compnies like that don't need my business.
