LETTER TO THE EDITOR: The Cornell Twice-Weekly Sun

To the Editor:

Last I checked the name of this publication is The Cornell Daily Sun. Yet, you only give the public two papers per week. Please let me know if I missed the moment when daily and twice a week became synonymous. You know, for those of us loyal readers, it’s not right for you to follow the promise you make in your title. I punctuate my days with your crossword puzzles, commit to memorizing your masthead and can’t start the day without “Tom the Dancing Bug.” Do you not care about your audience? I have even taken it upon myself to learn Sun Style and note how you don’t use Oxford Commas. If I can dedicate that level of commitment to you, the least you can do is make sure that there is a print paper in my hand every morning. We all know that reading an article on your website doesn’t hit the same way that reading a story in print does — the fear of getting a papercut with every page flip is one of the few things that keeps me going.  You’ve been independent since 1880 and lying since I can remember. Perhaps consider a rebrand: The Cornell Twice-Weekly Sun.
