Weather service not public service

Just when you think they cannot get worse the Times deteriorates even further.

Their front page format allows for almost 150 square inches of content.  The other 70 square inches on the sheet are used for advertising and the masthead.

Their  Wednesday, August 31, 2016 front page featured a picture and article that occupied 111 square inches or about 74% of the space available for news.

Really important

The Times evidently felt it was important to tell us that it might not rain this weekend but then again it might.

Also on the front page was an article from their correspondent in Austin that informed us that the North Loop Drive expansion project was delayed three years because AT&T failed to move its infrastructure.  If the Times was more dedicated to serving the public it might have written about this a few years ago.

We deserve better

    In fairness, the Times did write about AT&T’s part in Loop 375 delays in April of 2015 when the information first surfaced.
