Nighan undercover at Wegmans
In CITY publishes “Picking up the slack”, we lament the incredibly shrinking Opinion/Letters-to-the Editor section of the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, reduced to just Sunday and buried halfway in the Business pages. This week only seven letters were printed.
To the D & C‘s credit, today one of the letters, “Wegmans not the only bag in town,” is by our Michael J. Nighan. Again, credit where credit is due, the D & C did not shy away from Nighan’s critique of its fawning — or at least excessive — coverage of Wegmans’ transition from plastic to paper bags.
By the way, the D & C no longer even bothers to post printed letters online.
While agreeing with Nighan that the D & C short shrifts other local businesses also impacted by the state ban, I do think moving from plastic to paper and encouraging multiple use carrying bags is overall a good thing.SEE ALSO
