I am grateful for the News-Press letters to the editor, both that the paper provides it and that many people write in. From time to time one hears that newspapers might be on the decline, because of the Internet first and foremost. Yet the News-Press’ Mailbag section is robust enough that it makes me think newspapers are still vital.

What do you think, editor Dan Evans?

Editor’s reply: Thanks for the note, and for writing. Though newspapers do have their challenges, the News-Press is in a better position than most because of our unique connection to our community, and the letters page does reflect that.
