You are deeply grateful to everyone who has ever read this paper, bought an ad to help support it, opened up to tell us their stories, sent us tips, delivered documents, written letters to the editor, or posted comments on the website. You have profound appreciation for everyone who has opened a restaurant, played music, created art, put on a show, held public office or done anything else you and your staff were inspired to write about.
But to come right out and say that? C'mon. People think you're a hard-edged, cynical journalist. Last thing you want is for anyone to think you're all sappy and sentimental.
