Nrd: Marital Aid

From a reader:

Jonah –

You’ve saved my marriage. I loved NRODT, but my lovely bride bristled at the cost, especially since with my hectic lifestyle I would often leave the issues unread for weeks at a time. Plus, she’s convinced that most of the good stuff is on NRO, anyway. With NROnly (I hope I coined the phrase), I can slip under the family funding radar. I’ll tell her I spent it on wings and beer with the guys.

So my conscience is allayed now that I’m no longer sponging free-ish content (I would spend Frequent Flier miles on the subscription whenever the offer rolled around, but that was usually for half a year, offered once a year). I feel like I’m contributing now. Don’t spend the $20 all in one place.

Bill
