It's been an interesting day here at the Weekly today. After a stretch of exhausting and emotional days since Saturday morning, the shooting-related news has slowed, the heart wrenching funerals have begun, and President Obama visited, spoke, and left town. For a weekly newspaper and daily blog, the question we had to ask ourselves is when we go back to covering the rest of what's going on in Tucson and the rest of the world?
At what point are we doing our readers a disservice by skipping over what deserves to be spotlighted in town, whether that's Adam Borowitz on food, Jim Nintzel on politics, Mari Herreras on a little of everything, the amusing YouTube videos and whatever else it is that I do here, and all the other contributors?
So, tomorrow, regular programming will return to The Range. We're still going to cover developments as far as trying to make a little more sense of what happened and the recovery of those involved, but we'll also bring back the pre-Saturday features as well.
If you're new to the Tucson Weekly or The Range, we hope we'll give you reason to stay and contribute through the comments. If you've been a reader for some time, we hope we'll keep improving, informing, and entertaining.
Thanks for reading.
