Congratulations on the sale of the newspaper. As a long-time subscriber, I sincerely hope you will return to a seven-day-a-week paper rather than a part-time edition.
Over the years, as the left has moved farther left and the right has moved farther right, we voters have watched in dismay as discussions of serious issues in national politics have devolved into junior high school-worthy name-calling sessions, as presidential debates have turned into knock-offs of "Family Feud," as hosting "Saturday Night Live" has become more newsworthy than a thoughtful position paper on a national issue.
