Sun's overemphasis on lawbreaking is a crime

September 01, 2010

In regards to Peter Hermann's column on "You think there's too much crime reporting?" (Aug. 29), I might say, "You think there's nothing else going on besides crime?" Yes, it sells papers. But so do the human interest stories about the many positive things going on in our region.

Which is why I'm saddened that, even though there is a separate column devoted just to crime reporting, the "Around the Region" section is at least 80 percent about crime. Come on, let's talk about the many interesting, informative things that are happening in our area. If we must read about crime, at least balance that out by informing us about the many non-crime-related things going on. Your readers deserve better.
