Only the Wisest and Stupidest Never Change

RECEIVED Wed., Feb. 28, 2024

Dear Editor,
    I love, love, love the print edition of the Chronicle. Always have, always will. It lets me enjoy the world around me without glaring at a computer or cellphone. It’s been my go-to for activities for years. If I want to see a play, I go to the theatre listings (opening, continuing, closing). Want to see some music, the music section. Comedy, the comedy section. Drag brunch, the Qmmunity section. You get the idea. Now let’s talk about your new events format. If I want to see a play, I must page through the whole edition. Maybe a community event, let’s go back and page through again. So, it’s not really reader-friendly. And, 99% of the event blurbs don’t include URLs for more information or running dates for events that go on for more than a day. I’m worried it signals the demise of the print edition. Is this true? Remind your advertisers how fast we click past ads in an e-edition. Remember when we thought streaming was a great idea? Sorry, but change is not always good.
