Dropping Subscriptions

When I was younger, twenty years younger, I subscribed to the WSJ, Forbes and Barrons.  Though I am retaining my subscription to the WSJ (my wife wants it for one of my older sons), I am letting my subscriptions to Forbes and Barrons lapse.  What good that they do, I can get online.  (I will probably keep my Barrons Online, but dump WSJ Online.)

I just don’t get enough from Forbes to justify reading it anymore.  Their lists are a convenient way to fill space, and the advertising to articles ratio is high.  I like Barron’s, but I can read it online.  As for the Wall Street Journal Online, it may already be free.

I learned a lot from all of these publications when I was younger, but time is shorter now, and I get more information from online sources at present.
