Mail bugs

Ed Kemmick is bugged by a letter to the editor in today's Gazette. I was bugged by the same letter for a different reason. "When will Montana get a newspaper that is owned by Montanans and run by Montanans," the writer asks.

Well, there's the Outpost, now seven years old and still struggling. And the Missoula Independent, a dozen years old. And the Queen City News, pushing three. And the Butte Weekly, a couple of months older than the Outpost. The writer's question has an easy answer: When more Montanans start supporting the Montana-owned and Montana-run newspapers that already exist.
