Would like to have seen more Easter coverage
I’m so sorry your newspaper did not get the memo in time print something in your paper about this being Easter Sunday, the most important celebration in all Christendom. Most businesses and individuals in Christian communities around the world celebrated the “Good News” anyway. Being that the moral and legal foundation of our great United States is founded on Christian principles, and we have existed as a free country through God’s grace, I would have bet that you’d find some way to mention it in your paper, but what do I know about publishing a newspaper whose majority of readers probably profess to be believers. I’m grateful that Hobby Lobby and others were willing to pay (handsomely, I’d guess) to proclaim the great I AM in your Easter Edition.
I would guess that if every Christian subscriber to your paper were to cancel his or her subscription because you didn’t get the memo, your circulation would decrease by two-thirds overnight. To be sure this oversight doesn’t happen again, I’ll remind you a few days ahead of time next year when Easter is to be celebrated with something other than Easter Egg Hunt.
Editors note: A photograph of a child on an Easter egg hunt filled the top third of Sunday’s Pg. 1. We also solicited and posted on our Facebook page over the weekend photographs submitted by local churches of their Easter observances.
