If it affects the West, it belongs in HCN

Document Actions
A recent issue of HCN included a letter from Ms. Kathy Crooks suggesting that the sole appropriate topic for the paper is environmental news of the West (HCN, 8/22/05: Leave sociology coverage to National Geographic).

Thought I’d let you know that this subscriber at least considers your brief to be "the West." Not just the environment, though environmental issues will naturally play a big part of any publication that considers the West its topic.

As far as I’m concerned, if it happens in, involves or materially affects the West or the people in it, and it’s something I’m not likely to see covered in my home town paper, then it will not be out of place in HCN.
