WSJ BlackBerry Mobile Reader

A few days ago I downloaded the Wall St. Journal's Mobile Reader for BlackBerry (LINK). It's a wonderful application! Allows full access to the WSJ in a format that I find even more accessible than the standard WSJ online Web version on a computer. That seems strange, that reading a newspaper is easier on the little window of a BlackBerry. But being able to quickly scan the headlines and dive deeper into the articles is something I'm more likely to do while looking at my BlackBerry in a few spare moments while I'm waiting for something than when I'm at my desk, on my computer. And "more likely" is equivalent to "easier". 

Downside is that I'm now subjected to the WSJ's ghastly editorials . . .

do you prefer the socialist editorial pages of every other paper?

Michael: haven't read a socialist editorial page since college. Sorry to disappoint. Rational, mainstream, liberal editorials? You betcha. And some conservative ones. But even people at the WSJ, it's rumored, thinks the editorial pages sometimes stray too far right--right off the map.
