Newspaper Delivery 101

I have to say that a great newspaper understands that sometimes it rains, and they know it is important to double bag the paper on a rainy day. The paper must go in one bag first, then the other bag in the opposite direction.

Unfortunately, the lesser quality newspapers seem to feel that one bag is enough, or even worse, don’t bag at all.  I don’t know where they live, but my driveway is sloped (just for the purpose of draining rain water to the street), and when there’s a single bag, the paper is always wet and worthless.
