Rent a Newspaper in Ethiopia

Standing room only Addis Ababa's voracious readers
can get their news fix by renting a paper for half an hour.
On Saturdaysin particular it can be tough to find an
empty 'news seat'. (Mohammed Selman)
Read the Mail & Guardian article entitled "Ethiopia's Paper Landlords" here.

Comment: This line from the article linked above made my day:
"One copy of a newspaper may quickly pass through a hundred readers before, late in the day, it is finally recycled as toilet tissue or bread wrap."
Don't you just luv green reading?  ;0)
