I am a longtime News & Observer subscriber. My mornings begin with coffee and the paper, beginning with the front section and ending with the comics and puzzles. I understand the need for change from time to time, even though adjusting to new things is always hard at first.
The emphasis on local news on the front of the paper is very much of secondary interest to me. But if that is to be your policy, I beg you not to shortchange the national and international news.
I have always been pleased with The N&O’s coverage of all the news, side stories from everywhere with a lot of wire-service stories included. This morning’s paper had really minimal information apart from a few headlines.
Please don’t let The N&O become only a local paper. We are not a provincial area, and our leading source of print news should not reflect otherwise.
