I remember when it used to come in the mail mid week. Now they bring it on Mondays.It still has a fun crossword puzzle and some good articles on tech and the goings on in our community.It's free so you get what you pay for, I guess.

I remember the Keith Amemiya front page cover story when he was a candidate for mayor. Total advertisement. Although he lost the race decidedly despite the smear campaign and lack of experience, he's now been elevated to a Lt Governor candidate, the stepping stone to the Governorship. Mid-week's photo cover catches your eye and gives candidates more exposure as it's stuffed into thousands of voters mailboxes regularly. I save my issues for when we bbq.

Hasn't this always been painfully obvious, though? Twenty or so years ago when Midweek spammed every mailbox with their entirely-for-profit meatlessness, I took the time to get it to stop coming. Some were incredulous: "...but...it's FREE..." So who doesn't know that it's entirely "(advertisement)" by now?These days, in my mind, it's the phone book that's the major offender in this realm.
