This means you get the monthly mag and all its extras for less than a Starbucks skinny latte for $1.50 per issue. Question is, will readers bite? “It actually sounds desperate. It’s like one of those TV infomercials where they keep throwing things in. ‘If you call now, we’ll ALSO include this…’” said a longtime D.C. journalist.
