The Calgary Herald my city's 'paper of record' featured a self congratulatory full page piece yesterday bragging about how their circulation numbers are higher than ever.

I know this, not because I bought yesterday's edition - I'd never actually pay money for that God-awful rag - but because like every day, a small army of Herald employees spend the morning rush hour handing out free copies to commuters at my train platform, and presumably other patforms all over the city, from stacks of free Heralds the size of small cars.
