Letter to Editor

There’s More To Write About Than Just The Church

Is it really necessary for every edition of your newspaper to have an article or a commentary about the Church? I mean no disrespect to the Archdiocese or any of the parishes you write about, but there is so much more to the community than that.

A few years ago I read a reference in the paper, or maybe it was in a subscription renewal letter, that the Herald considers itself the newspaper of record of the community. That’s what the New York Times calls itself.

The Times comes out every day. In one week there are seven editions. And in America there are hundreds of thousands of Churches, compared with, what 500 in the Archdiocese?

I swear, weeks go by without my seeing an article in the Times about a Church or a synagogue. Does the Times have an axe to grind? I doubt it. They just have more important things to do, and so does Theodore Kalmoukos, whose articles I enjoy.
