If you haven't tried it recently, you haven't really tried it

Like many others, I tried a subscription to the Chronicle a year ago and cancelled during the 14-day free period. This past November, however, I decided to cancel my regular paper and started trying Kindle versions of several papers from across the country (Las Vegas, Seattle, Sacramento, San Jose, and back to San Francisco). The Chronicle is by far the best of these papers and is available at the lowest price. In addition, it had noticeably improved over what I tried a year ago -- nice pictures to accompany selected articles, summaries of all major sporting events, etc. Further, it has always been waiting on my Kindle when I have breakfast shortly after 6:00. Clearly the complaints about late delivery are out of date.
I should note that 4 stars is the highest rating I can give any Kindle version of newspapers as long as they fail to include comics, local weather, local TV listings, etc. The Chronicle already seems to include more of its content on the Kindle than any other paper (especially the Sunday edition), but not enough for the elusive fifth star.
