This morning at the intersection of 40th Street and 8th Avenue, a woman was shouting at the top of her lungs, dressed in a blue smock, at the onrush of commuters coming out of the Port Authority Bus Terminal.

“Check it out! Daily News is 75 cents!” she was hollering, as a few feet behind her and to the left, against a curb, a man in the same smock stood before a Foxy lettuce box on which were stacked copies of the Spanish-language daily tabloids, the New York Post and the News. The News this morning arrived with a special blue poster for them to use to help them move papers: “GREAT VALUE FOR 75¢.”
