March 5, 2022 --

Last year, LPR took advantage of a discounted introductory rate of a year's subscirption to The New Yorker.

At the conclusion of the subscription term, LPR was invited to renew for about $150 the annum. 

As this sum would take a hefty bite out of its  monthly Social Security disbursement, LPR proposed in a note to the editor that he accept $180 in three installments of $60.  How could he refuse this offer to pay thirty dollars more than the lump sum demanded?

LPR received form follow-ups for the lump sum figure; no direct response from the editor.

Doesn't The New Yorker recognize a fair business alternative when it gets one?   Apparently not.   The newsstand cost of the magazine is $9.00.  Fare thee well, Eustace.
