I'm working on an article for the National Conference of Editorial Writers' trade journal, The Masthead, about the relationship between today's downsized newspapers and their communities. I'm eager to hear from anyone -- in Spokane or anywhere else -- who's ever approached a newspaper editorial board to appeal for action or assistance on some matter. And even if you haven't had a personal experience, what would your expectations be if you did? Feel free to post your comments on the blog or e-mail me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Matter of Opinion is really a matter of three opinions – those held by the people responsible for the opinion pages of The Spokesman-Review. Check in regularly to find out what they’re up to, what they think and where they differ and to joust with them if you want.
