Today, we offer another viewpoint to several recent KSL editorials.
One editorial praised the decision to switch the Deseret News from evening to morning delivery. Maggie Olson of Pleasant Grove lamented the change, saying a morning newspaper is not convenient for her family:
" . . . we will be forced to get our local news from the television, and lose the in-depth perspective, editorial variety, broad spectrum of stories, and comic relief that a daily paper brings to readers."
Another editorial supported Mayor Rocky Anderson’s decision to appoint a commission to look into the Elizabeth Smart investigation. Jeanne Marsh of Salt Lake City expressed hope the probe won’t dwell only on the negative:
"Rarely do families have the opportunity that the Smart’s have had to be reunited with their missing child. That being the case, apparently there have been a number of things done correctly."
In yet another editorial, KSL encouraged the University of Utah to "stay the course" in its legal effort to keep guns off its campus. Michael R.King expressed the opinion of many who wrote with an opposing view:
"Legally carried concealed firearms are not the problem. Violent armed criminals are. Let’s go after them, not the citizens who legally carry and by doing so deter violent crime.
