Switching gears

Maybe The El Paso Times would be well served to follow the lead of the The New-England Courant which in 1721 was a publication that published literary pieces and humorous essays as well as local news.

The Courant was popular because it published content that interested the public.

Unfortunately much of what we read in the Times today was already published by various electronic methods.

They could cover also cover local issues more thoroughly rather than just passing on what the local government agencies want us to see.

Many of the functions of our local governments are shut down right now.

At least we don’t have to worry as much about whatever corrosive action they are taking.

I think I’ll take my own advice and publish some works that you might find interesting.

We deserve better

    the el paso times has only ever published what the government line was. why would you want them to change that? they are the original fake news. everyone will be better off when they completely go out of business. rumors on a bus are more likely to be accurate news than anything published in el paso times.

    Yes please. We all need creative input in these challenging times. Some of the best humor, art, literature, and so on is created in difficult periods of human history. More than good times humanity progresses through adversity. It is more important what you do not want than what you want. We are learning that we can worry or not worry, the outcome will be the same. To be able to earn our lives we need to be involved. You cannot complain unless you are willing to do something about it. Also it is important to note that one should not 💩 where you eat. Please leave some toilet paper and other essentials for the rest of us. I look forward to progress on every level as I am a optimist. The world will not be the same place after this pandemic . What doesn’t change is not alive.

    Ceased publication June 25, 1726. If it was so darn good, it probably would have lasted longer than 3 years.
