Fuzzy Math (Aaron Swartz: The Weblog):

"One of the weirdest things I heard when listening to the Cato Institute debate was an economist claim 'a tenet of my profession is that people won't pay for something they can get for free.' Someone objected, using the analogy of bottled water. There's a far better example: The New York Times."

But then: Bottled water isn't the same thing as free (tap) water, and nytimes.com isn't that same thing as The New York Times in print, is it?
