The Day weighs in with an editorial lamenting the possible closure of The Bristol Press and New Britain Herald.
Here's an excerpot: "The two daily newspapers are a part of the fabric of everyday life in central Connecticut, as are newspapers across the country. They are the conduit that provides local municipal news and information on births, deaths, arrests, high school sports and more. Readers depend on their newspapers to stay informed. Television and the Internet might keep people abreast of what's happening in the Gaza Strip, but they won't tell them what the local zoning commission is up to or if the New Britain Golden Hurricanes won a big game."
The editorial also hails the state Department of Economic Development for doing "nothing extraordinary to save the Journal Register newspapers," which is exactly what lawmakers asked from it.
In any case, I'm glad to see The Day's support. Every little bit helps. Maybe.
