Reading a recent issue of The News Tribune, I realized how long I had read the paper and how significant it has been. On the editorial pages were writers such as Leonard Pitts Jr. and Kathleen Parker plus a Viewpoint article by Julie Anderson, the Pierce County auditor. These are all significant commentaries on the local and national scene.
They are highly relevant and provide a view of life in our society. Newspapers may ultimately become electronic media, but for now they are a significant source of information in traditional paper format.
