the continuing newspaper saga

Our regional newspaper, the one I delivered when I was young, continues to make changes. Most recently they folded the local section into main section of the paper. The stated rationale was that local news was important enough to be in the main section.

Press Enterprise mastheadNonsense. This was clearly a cost-saving move, though probably necessary for newspaper survival. Still, it’s not the paper that I once proudly delivered.

Nonetheless, the changes are not all bad. As part of those changes they upgraded the features section and added two comics that I enjoy and which I hadn’t seen for a while. And on Saturdays they quietly added Miss Manners. I enjoy Miss Manners and her sharp wit. It’s nice to be able to read her smart and practical advice once again.
