I was a proud contributor to the Philadelphia Inquirer for nearly 20 years, but I’m now saddened to see this once great newspaper, the “newspaper of record” for Philadelphia, decline.

You could also consider diversifying your news coverage and opinion pieces, which, with few exceptions, always come from the same perspective, that of a politically correct, social-justice warrior and progressive Democrat.
