Fight on, HCN

Document Actions
Regarding the note in "Dear Friends" about readers troubled by HCN’s tough coverage of the Bush administration’s policies across the West: Let ’em be troubled and angry! These are troubling, angry times. The Bush administration is carrying out an array of highly controversial policies across the West. I speak as one who’s been reporting on them for the past three years, and I sit next to boxes of files of stories I’ll never get to simply for lack of time.

This is what’s going on right now in the West, and if your more conservative readers are troubled by that, they should be. I consider High Country News one of the essential instruments of small "d" democracy in the West. You guys are among the few who really pay attention, and go out and seek ground truth on these issues. If you don’t do it, nobody else will.

Keep up the good work! If you’re getting angry subscription-drop letters, you’re doing your job. And doing it well.
