Bring back Monday’s Herald print edition

I think I heard earlier that The Herald decided not to issue a print paper on Mondays, since several holidays fall on that day, and there would be no paper delivered in the mail then anyway. Thinking about it further, I find that there are roughly 52 Mondays in a year, a half-dozen holidays on that day, and therefore — in 2023 —46 Mondays that are regular days sans holiday. This rationale to not print the Monday paper seems to me to be based on weak logic, more an excuse than a reason.

I look forward to the Monday paper, containing the Monday New York Times crossword puzzle. Monday is the easiest crossword of the week, making it reasonable for me to negotiate. I tried printing the crossword this week, in the lower-right quadrant of the page, and was beset with technical difficulties. I also don’t relish having to print out the crossword 52 times a year, even if I get past the learning curve. What would work best, from an old-fashioned perspective of customer, client, end user, would be for the Monday paper to arrive in print, as on any other day. I would appreciate it if you would resume printing the Monday Herald. Thanks for your consideration,

Larry Williamson
