Our views don’t meld, you are correct. The plastic is the problem and I am doing my part in solving it. The route through Phil is not working – yet he seems to be the mouth piece for the TNT. A poor choice – but again just my opinion.

Be well, C./

They are not a last salvation. They are a piece. Again, if you don't want to help solve the problems first and them complain if they are not solved I am all in. But going nuclear before you have sought to understand is not a method I have much use for.

I am not expecting your views to meld with mine. That’s why I read the paper. You can believe in this last salvation panacea if you prefer.

Plastic baggies are not a magic potion. They have activated a whole lot of people who walk about this town and care for it and the Salish Sea so close we can smell it every day.

I have communicated with Phil. He said there is no issue –as he sees it. But if there was we simply should send him the names and phone numbers of the folk residing in the vacant properties. You are masters of Catch 22. Keep doing your part – I do mine. Just please don’t claim press freedom over this.

On the safety side:– nothing says ‘enter this house’ like a bunch of leftover ads in the front yard. Don’t make us a target.

  The circ department doesn't want them in the street, they want them on the walk leading to houses because that is what the advertisers want. Phil has been very responsive to delivery mistakes and has corrected them as he gets them. Had you tried to get the issue resolved that way I think you would have gotten further.

 

For some reason you don't want to have the issues resolved, you want the Trib to cancel the entire program. That would, in fact, hurt the newsroom. I am sorry if my views do not meld exactly with yours.

Orange plastic baggies in Tacoma gutters will make you expand journalism? How dumb of me not to think of that!

You lost at least three loyal customers (15 years in my case). But what’s a loyal and involved reader when you can have orange plastic baggies??!! WOOHUUU!! I communicated with Phil Schroder. His eyes are not working. I doubt he has a conscious, either. But who needs that when you have journalism!

Party on, Peter!

You need to talk to the bosses.

 

They are not to be delivered in the streets or parking strips but on walks or driveways between sidewalk and houses. If they are not, you should let phil.schroder@thenewstribune.com

 

 

But you are right, we all hate anything that produces revenue that might allow us to maintain or even expand our journalism.

Please tell us why this is happening? Most of the Trib staff must be as horrified about it as we are. It’s plain unconscionable.

Thanks
