Letters- Restoring my faith in newspaper

  • Sep 30, 2016 at 2:48PM

I want to express my satisfaction and admiration at your courageous decision to provide complete and factual coverage on the recentmurder-suicide incident here on my home island of Lopez. Another reader and I were discussing this story when your first article came outin Volume 36, Number 35 of the Weekly. We came to a reluctant agreement that your staff would most likely bow to political correctness andnot provide any further details in subsequent issues. But you surprised us with your professional and accurate reporting and for this I amgrateful. Sadly, it's not so common these days for the printed press to do its job and give the people the full and relevant details of a story,no matter how much discomfort they may cause to a particular segment of our society.
