Bland or beneficial?


Editor: Relax-the world's not coming to an end. ("Excuses, excuses," P. J. Bednarski column, Oct. 16). Your over-the-top criticism of broadcasters' " timidity" sounds more personal than professional.

Believe it or not, some broadcasters actually believe their job is to report the news, not make it, and some of us "well-paid transients" actually do care about problems in our communities.

In spite of your accusation that we're "timid and bland," we are tremendously beneficial to our communities. By the way, ad revenue from my car-dealer cronies allows me to subscribe to your magazine.-
