Letter: There’s a wide world out there, Tribune
First Published Jun 20 2014 05:03 pm • Last Updated Jun 21 2014 05:48 pm

I have been a subscriber to The Salt Lake Tribune for more than 48 years, there may not be a 49th. First the paper was for at least 47 of those years reliably delivered on weekdays by 6:30 a.m., now by 7 a.m. as I pull out the driveway if I am lucky. Saturday and Sunday by 7 a.m., now 8 a.m. if I am really lucky. What good is a morning paper that I cannot read until evening?

Second, the "front page." What the front page of the last two days (June 19 and 20) implies is that nothing of importance is happening anyplace but in Salt Lake County or in the State of Utah. How can that be? There is a world out there, I think.

I have heard there is very bad weather that has destroyed a lot of property and taken lives in the Midwest, but "What do Utahns really pay of health care coverage" is more pressing and important. "Utah seeking a major state park in San Rafael Swell" easily tops what is happening in Iraq.

Not a single headline about anything happening outside of Utah and not much pressing news of the day is what we get on the front page of The Tribune. Why? Could be that the new agreement with the Deseret News is designed to marginalize The Tribune into the Salt Lake City Daily?
