I scanned each page of The Salt Lake Tribune on June 6.

Amid all the articles on political chicanery, tax giveaways and other tripe, not one single mention of the 74th anniversary of the D-Day invasion — an event that still tears at the hearts of all those families whose beloved members never returned from that terrible time.

Could you not have found a bit of space, possibly a 1- or 2-column-inch reminder, just the briefest comment about an event that marked the eventual downfall of the Nazi tyranny?

Have the recent cutbacks in staff and the embarrassingly lowered number of print pages so desensitized you to merely leave remembering to us, the older part of society who lived through those momentous periods?
