Letter to the Editor
Associate Editor/Features Editor
As a reader of the Detroit News on a daily basis, I wanted to leave a remark regarding what I thought was a fantastic article, the placed on the front section of the website entitled “Foreclosures slow Detroit’s rebirth” written by Mike Wilkinson and Christine MacDonald. While the author’s name had a typo while I was looking at it (Christine’s name was attached to the “and”), it was the only blemish on what I believe was a fantastic article.
For one, I thought the article pointed out so many truthful points about foreclosure that everyday Americans, including those of us in or around Detroit, aren’t aware of. The article went into an extreme amount of depth to explain what was going on in this market and provided statistics to show what was going on in the world.
As a reader, I believe this wonderful article should have been posted higher up the page where more viewers can see it and click on the link. Instead of an informative article that can teach the citizens around us something about our society being right in our face, I have to look past that to look at a thug football player who eats marijuana? That doesn’t seem right.
As the editor of this organization, I was hoping I could bring this to your attention so in the future, articles that matter like this one, are put before a silly athlete who wastes his talents doing drugs. In a city that is trying to grow past the struggles we have endured over the recent recession, we don’t need children reading about druggie athletes. We need them to read the paper and learn something. So do more of that in the future please.
Our children are depending on it.
