    A community institution?

    More like a dying institution. I think you’re dreaming if you think executive pay cuts will save the Journal. It may stave the inevitable off but to blame it on trickle down economics is intellectually dishonest. Look around and you, of all people, can see print is going the way of the 8 track and VCR.

    New Englanders ran the Journal better. They cared more; they were more connected.  Edward Achorn is the pro-consul for the home office in glorious Dallas.    Hail, Dallas!!

    He, more than any individual, took the paper from a legit entity, to which I subscribed for decades, to its present shadow of a form.

    Vote against, not only my better instincts, but any semblance of fair play with regard to your local schoolteacher, which was I (me) at one time?   Please.

    Maybe the Journalistas should adopt the example of Bob Kerr and stand for something. 

    He remains readable and credible to this day, and I doubt that it’s been easy for him.

    All I can remember since I cancelled my subscription (or was it a prescription – Ambien?) were all those editorials with the writers pontificating about “buggy whips”.  If Henry Anthony were around, I wonder how he would feel about all this.  Gosh, those were the days!  Weren’t they?
