I love the last line of the story:  "It takes over two hours to receive the entire text of the newspaper over the phone, and with an hourly use charge of five dollars, the new tele-paper won't be much competition for the twenty cent street edition."

Tele-paper is going to be my new word for online news now.  greenS
