That's pretty crappy. I hope they put them back in. Not everyone loves Sudoku!
When they started, they also had a full-page each weekly (Wednesdays) devoted to comics, a main article and a column of reviews. About a year later, it was just a few short reviews. Now--nothing. And now NO COMICS PAGE?! Who do they think they are? The WSJ?! (Ha! Don't they wish!) I'm not completely surprised. It's a hack newspaper--any paper that publishes a faux front page that's really an ad is telling folks they are more focused on selling ads to make money rather than on editorial to do the job.
Yes, I should have mentioned the pages about comics too - they were great. Fortunately Scott's been able to write some articles for the Express since he moved over therre, but I began picking up the Examiner for the comics articles, and then begans sending the strips page to Michigan State U's Comic Art Collection and now I have much less reason to pick it up.
But there's still one reason, right? :-)
Yes, everyone should continue to pick up the Express and write them frequently that "Nate Beeler's cartoon is the ONLY reason to pick up the paper every day."
