Bring humor back to Sunday’s paper

I can’t understand the narrow-mindedness that has been expressed in recent letters about The Buzz. It’s the first thing I read Monday through Saturday. In fact, Monday through Friday I read The Buzz while walking back up my driveway with the paper. I find it to be entertaining as well as a useful guide to some of the stories I’ll find worth reading. What could be better to start your day than a good chuckle?

I’d like to see The Buzz back on the front page on Saturday and returned to the Sunday edition as well. Oh yeah, stop covering it up with that advertisement sleeve on the left. No obstructions, please. Lighten up, people! Grow a sense of humor.
