Nothing but bad news in the media these days...

Our sympathies to those who lost their jobs -- and to the public, as the shrinking state-paper-of-record offers its readers fewer interesting and thoroughly reported articles. -- Ray Stern

I'm the editor of the Green Valley News & Sahuarita Sun, south of Tucson, and I've never been happier in my career. I'm thankful for what I learned at The Republic and the opportunities there, but the move is just what I needed. Dan Shearer (W: 520-547-9770).
