Letters to the Editor

An essential service

It seems like The Bee continues to get narrower and smaller. Some days, the obituary pages get more space than national and international news. And I begin to feel like I'm supporting a charity with my subscription.

But then I watch Bill Moyers Journal and am captivated, educated, and enthused by his interview about Iraq and Afghanistan with Nancy Youssef of McClatchy News. And I remember other stories from McClatchy News. And I try to think of stories from other news agencies and can only think of stories from AP.

And then I know that I'm not contributing to a charity. I'm investing in an essential service that will protect my well being. Please find a few more inches to run stories by your outstanding national and international reporters.

Bill Simon
