I've been meaning to write you for months, but this week's extraordinary, precise and humane Editor's Note on Tucson's dismissive and disheartening failure to help solve the problem of homelessness propelled me to tell you that I find you an amazing, heartfelt Managing Editor.
You take literary risks, pushing the issues out front to an often uncaring populace who wouldn't even push through bond issues to rectify some of the town's long-standing problems, and yet you carry on each week, pointing out the relevancy of what needs to be done to become a civilized society.
Kudos to you; I hope the paper (and this town) appreciates your intelligence and your words. I do.
