I couldn't help myself, but I thoroughly enjoyed telling the telemarketer for the Oregonian that the reason why I'll never subscribe is I strongly object to their biased coverage on bikes.

I did the same thing to somebody that came to our door trying to sell subscriptions... told them "hell no, they run too many anti-bike and bike vs car articles, I hope they go out of business!"...
