Letter: Tribune readers will miss their daily paper

(Rick Bowmer | AP file photo) Copies of The Salt Lake Tribune newspaper are shown on April 20, 2016, 2020, in Salt Lake City. The Salt Lake Tribune will stop printing a daily newspaper after nearly 150 years at the end of the year and move to a weekly print edition.

It was painful to read Michael Greer’s Nov. 9 letter to The Salt Lake Tribune complaining about other people’s responses to the ending, after so many years, of the daily Tribune newspaper.

Mr. Greer calls those readers' disappointment and sense of loss of their daily experience a “walking cliche.”

His proud inability to understand the readers' sadness ignores the fact that sometimes the reason something becomes a cliche is because it feels true. The readers enjoy the analysis of the day’s happenings, the excellent writing of The Tribune’s reporters, and the in-depth analysis of events which the Trib’s writers provide (at least for a few weeks more).

But I suppose reading this response has kept you from your usual few minutes (or even seconds), scanning the few selected headlines on your chosen device.

Sallie Phelps, Salt Lake City
