Used to enjoy Collins' columns, but no longer
Just finished reading Peter Stanley's letter, “Reader has favorites among Day columnists,” (July 26). I agree with his comment about David Collins and his columns. A year ago, I enjoyed reading David's columns and the insight he brought to matters that should concern us all. But now? I do not read his "news." He gripes and whines. He is entitled to an opinion, but I no longer feel it is newsworthy.
I grew up reading and appreciating good reporting. David no longer accomplishes truthful news. I think The Day management should consider saying goodbye to David and replacing him with a reporter who has objectivity − not axes to whine.
