The Post's Midday Edition Hits the Streets

(Near 6th and Pennsylvania, NW, at the Newseum) The Washington Post afternoon edition has been spotted downtown.

One man, Mike Ivey, 40, of the District, said he purchased his from a street vendor near 6th and F streets. The $2 price gave him pause, he said, but he went ahead and bought it anyway.

"I figure we only have inauguration once," Ivey said.

He said the vendor had a tall stack but was selling quickly.

I'd be interested to know why the Post felt it was ok to up the price of the daily paper today to $2? Especially when other newspapers both in the DC area and out of town kept their regular daily price? I mean, the paper has been selling out all morning from what I'm hearing, you would've made the money up in the number of papers sold. Really a shame...
