As you may have noticed, the site looks different this week. We've just started a new subscription service that's available to you online; you'll find it when you click on selected stories from this month's print edition. If you're already a magazine subscriber, you can claim your free online subscription service today. You'll be able to read every article from the current print issue the same day it gets back to us from the printer's -- nearly two weeks before it hits the newsstand. If you're not a magazine subscriber, you can subscribe electronically today -- for the low price of $14.95 a year, not the $19.95 charged to print subscribers -- and get all the benefits of membership.
And remember: These changes have no impact on the availability of our online-only content. All of our Web-exclusive articles -- as well as TAPPED, our staff blog -- remain free of charge, so the work of such TAP contributors as Tony Hendra, Charles Pierce, Terence Samuel, and Laura Secor will continue to be available (as will a certain number of articles from the print magazine).
