Newspaper Chase VII

While I have yet to pick up an edition of AmNewYork, a free daily in the city -- I'm too busy trying to keep up with four other dailies, and I'd like to read even more -- I am thrilled silly that Metro is launching in New York sometime after May 1. A friend of mine was a scout for the Boston launch, and while I didn't read the Boston Metro every day, I was impressed by its internationalism, attention to labor activism, and sense of humor. May the New York Metro be as scrappy. Besides, I kind of miss the hawker who'd hand me my paper every day at the Central Square T stop. Will the Metro hawkers venture to Nassau Avenue on the G line? We shall see.
