Passing of daily papers a tragedy

A healthy lifestyle is the result of self-discipline and strong morals and need to be encouraged by societal changes, not scare-tactic surveys.

As have many who have editorialized, I too deplore the losing battle our daily newspapers are waging with television, the Internet and a national apathy/laziness over the presentation of news. I prefer printed page reporting of the professional journalist — TV sound bites are shallow and Internet blogs lack the experienced oversight of an editor.
