Donations to Herald? Here’s a quarter for my thoughts

The Herald recently sent a notice to subscribers seeking donations to stay afloat.

Instead, I suggest that you implement several cost cutting measures to stop the bleeding:

Fire all your political columnists. They have had the same message for many years (“It’s Trump’s fault”). We get the general idea. Let’s move on.

Cancel three-quarters of your comic strips. Modern comics are awful. I wish we could return to “Lil Abner” and “Terry And the Pirates.”

There is no sports news. Lay off your sports writers.

Lay off your automotive writers. People who are out of work can not afford the $85,000 Lexus SUV.

As far as donations go: Here’s a quarter; call someone who cares.
