Editor’s Note: The empty white space referred to in the following letter is actually the place where the mailing address label is placed for those who receive their newspaper by mail. For those who do not receive their newspaper by mail, staff understands that this space might look awkward. Staff continues to discuss ways to change this, but no decisions have been made at this time.
To the Editor:
Each time I look at the front page of the Troy Daily News, my eye is attracted to the empty white space in the upper right hand corner. To me, this creates a lack of “symmetry” or balance to the whole page and might even suggest you wanted to place something there, but just forgot!
Might I suggest you use this space to print a daily “optimistic” thought for the day or some other information or image that might be of perceived value to your readers and return their sense of balance to them!
