Reader feedback

In the journalism world, it’s always a little nerve-racking when we go to press and wait to see how our articles are received. Recently, I wrote an article about a mother who wanted her kindergarten son’s school to pick him up in front of their house. His bus stop, across two open fields, is about 200 feet away. Quite a distance for a kindergartner, some would say. The transportation department countered with this logic: if we stop in front of his house, we’ll have to stop in front of everybody’s house and will never get to school on time.

In general, it was a balanced article. Still, I was a little nervous.

Not to worry, so far. The mother called today and said she loved it.
