Paying more for the Globe

The fancy insert in today's paper has the official numbers: effective June 1, you'll pay $12.25 for seven days of Globe home delivery and $8 for Thursday-Sunday. No change for Sunday only.

I've been a seven-day subscriber. Not sure I'll keep up at that price.

Also, the note in the insert from publisher Steve Ainsley says the Globe "broke [the] news" of the financial pressures facing The Globe in early April. If he's referring to the Times Co.'s threatened shutdown of the paper, he's wrong. I believe WBUR was the first to report the shutdown threat, and that DQM was the first to report the timetable and amount of union concessions requested.

Finally, a question for current Globe subscribers: will you grit your teeth and pay the higher rates? Or read the paper online and save close to fifty bucks a month?
