New York Times helps support local news

I read the New York Times editorial (“A Free Press Needs You,” Aug. 16), which urged us to “subscribe to your local papers.” This editorial prompted me to pay for a subscription to the Alameda Sun. I am also enclosing an additional donation. 

Please keep up the good work! I thank you for all you do for our community.

Editor’s note: An excerpt from the Times’ editorial reads: “And if you haven’t already, subscribe to your local papers. Praise them when you think they’ve done a good job and criticize them when you think they could have done better. We’re all in this together.”
