Thank you, Stella, wherever you are

I was on KXNT-AM, 840 this morning and had the nicest call from a lady named Stella. She said she reads the paper from front to back. She loves the opinion pages and likes the fact our pages are not filled with opinions.

People are more than happy to tell us when they disagree with us, but it is rare that someone takes the time to say thank you for a job done well.

So, thank you, Stella, I hope we continue to live up to your expectations.

As always, everyone, keep the feedback — positive or negative. It is all constructive, except for those profanity laced screamers who get short shrift anyway.

By the way, to return Alan Stock’s kind recommendation to read the Review-Journal, you can listen to streaming KXNT on their Web site or via iTunes radio.
