Print still isn't dead

An EVG reader notes that someone keeps taking the Sunday Times from outside a building on East Eighth Street.

So now the super is tracking the situation via the building's surveillance system... from yesterday...

To the person stealing this newspaper

They need a high definition surveillance system.

Honestly home subscriptions work best when they can be delivered to your home. I'm always amazed by how many neighbors roll the dice with their Sunday NYT.

Why so angry? These folks need to check themselves and their privilege. This person needed that paper. News equality.

Mine periodically disappears, but the trick is to go downstairs and get it soon after the delivery. Weekdays there's no issues 'cause I'm out early; but on the weekends, I sometimes sleep in out of exhaustion...plus the delivery happens a little later (between 5-5:30 on weekdays, after 6:30 or even 7 am on weekends). I've been going down in my bathrobe on weekends for a while now and haven't had problems.

We had a rash of this on East 9th Street a few years back and found the culprit. There was a person (no identifiers beyond that) who was scooping up newspapers, cutting/tearing off the labels and taking them to some store and selling them.

I know exactly who that is. Who is asking?

I know who this is also. Who can I alert, Grieve?

Someone clearly sent the video in. Why no information on who to contact if the thief is recognized?

I know who this is too. I have to warn him that he's being taped by the NSA.

I have the resident's contact info. I can forward any information.
