Ode to Wes
Dear Mr. Skillings:
In this era of sound bytes, online news briefs and attention-deficit disorders, the Rocket-Courier provides a shining example of up-to-date news in an old timey, but innovative manner.
Although I am in Susquehanna County, I buy—yes, buy—this paper every week.
Your attention to facts, style and to language is very rare.
I enjoyed your column and I hope you will still write for the paper occasionally.
Growing up in Philadelphia, I had the Inquirer, which was once a stellar independent newspaper, and in the area where I live now we get few pages thrown together that passes for a newspaper.
In short, I will miss your professionalism.
The new editor, Rick Hiduk, has big shoes to fill.
