Reader apprciates range of content in The Herald

Like Langdon Moore, whose recent letter to the editor had several suggestions for cost-cutting at the Herald, but basically wanted to “Get rid of everyone and everything I don’t like,” there are elements of The Herald that I have little use for. But, please, keep your broad range of news items, opinions and, yes, comics. We live in enough of an information bubble when we’re not in coronavirus isolation. The Herald brings me the wider world, even when much of that world is disagreeable to me.

While he is hunkered in his basement with his stockpile of toilet paper, Katzenjammer Kids and MREs, I hope Mr. Moore takes a moment to read about our high school basketball stars and the upcoming bluegrass festival. ‘Pickles’ was pretty funny today too.

There’s a little of something for everyone in the Herald. Thank you.
