To the editor:
I just finished reading the Friday paper, and imagine my shock and dismay on finding NO stories about the 25th anniversary of the space shuttle tragedy. While I am sorry about the ball player losing so many family members in such a short amount of time, I feel that it didn’t exactly merit front page coverage. Or the picture on the third page of the student waiting to buy tickets to Saturday’s game.
This space could have been put to better use by honoring the seven Americans who died on that horrific day. Everyone complains that the Internet is ruining the world, but, hey, at least we get good news coverage on there, something we evidently can’t count on from our local paper.
