Picking Up A Souvenir

I like a souvenir as much as anyone. So with Obama getting in, picking a copy of that day’s New York Times seemed like an idea. Copies are printed in the UK, but it’s a “lite” version and time differences mean that it has to go to press very early.
This evening on NBC’s Nightly News, Brian Williams reported that copies were selling on eBay for as much as $30-50 each. Indeed a quick search reveals that I can pick up a copy for over £60 plus another £15 postage.
The I decided to visit the New York Times store which happily sells copies for $14.95 and that includes international postage. Sure, that’s a bit of premium over the regular $1.50 price, but I think it still represents good value.
