I just got it today because it wasnít clear how it would work originally, but now I have it. One 15 weeks subscription to the Wall Street Journal online. Thereís a special student discount so itís only about $35 for it, I (along with my Grandfather) went through and ordered it today. However, we discovered something else very interesting, Iím also getting the print version included in this price! Iím quite excited, next week (Tuesday) the print WSJ will begin arriving at my dorm and I have the online version to go through. Iíve spent much of the evening pursuing through, getting excited so now Iím sharing with all of you. [Cool] I highly recommend it as a news source. Same reason I almost only watch CNBC is that when it comes to an economic news source thereís almost no editorializing (comparatively anyways) and I can stand that bull. [Mad]

*Calms down* Anyways Iím having a great time with my new gift. [Big Grin]

Hobbes, it's worth noting that you should not rely exclusively on the WSJ for your news. It's as biased in its own way as most papers.

Can't you pop it up on your computer through your school library?

Nope, at least not as an undergrad, you'll have to ask Celia if she can do it (grad-student there). I can do that for monthly journals and what not but Purdue doesn't get anything like WSJ. [Dont Know]

Let me get this straight. You're getting excited over a newspaper? [Confused]

Hehe, Kama, that's what I was just thinking...

But Hobbes, that's great! [Wink] It's awesome that you're getting so much enjoyment out of it! [Smile]

[Razz] I didn't tell you that, I told you that you had to sign in which was true for the main library.

Oh, that's great, Hobbes! I love the WSJ! My mom has been getting it for years, and she's a super smart investor. But calling it unbiased is a laugh. It's rightist as can be! Sheesh! Unbiased! [Roll Eyes]

<grin> It seems to me it's biased, but not in a typical way. It's biased in that in only reports things as they relate to the economy, so you'll get one side of the story certainly. Thing is that you know that's what it'll be and it's not actually changing facts (or picking one-sided statistics or whatever), it's just not reporting anything that it doesn't think has to do with money. That's a much easier bias to deal with than liberal or conservitive. I really don't think it's either, not in a serious way.
