I am among the San Diegans who have had more than enough of the Doug Manchester U-T San Diego. After more than 20 years of continuous subscription, I had to pull the plug. And it wasn’t easy with the phone line locked up (“please wait for the next available operator” for 40 minutes (I finally gave up)) to discover that while it’s easy to start a subscription online, you virtually cannot end one. Well I finally succeeded and let the representative know what I thought of the new Manchester Mandate.
So the L.A. Times is a refreshing new morning read with the obvious omission of what’s happening locally. Which brings up my question/suggestion.
What are the chances of Voice of San Diego and the L.A. Times collaborating for a local printed San Diego section? I remember back when L.A. Times had a San Diego edition. With your editorial and investigative capabilities, it would be a natural partnership with mutual benefits, not to mention a service to the thousands of San Diegans who feel betrayed by our own local paper. And now you have a whole new market in North County.
I say go for it — you will find support for the effort.
