I don't like what you've been doing with “News of the Weird.” Sometimes you don't run it at all. Other times, you cut it down in size. I notice you don't mess with the sensationally superstitious astrology column or “Asheville Disclaimer” which, at its absolute best, barely rises to the level of faintly amusing.
It almost makes me wish I was a subscriber, so I could cancel.

Editor’s response: Unfortunately, we often have to make tough business choices because space is limited in the weekly print edition. We give preference to locally produced content, including “Asheville Disclaimer.” Sometimes we have the option to trim “News of the Weird” for the same reason, but “Freewill Astrology” isn’t as easy to shorten. Both have been cut occasionally, along with other regular features and stories. Both syndicated features can be found online at newsoftheweird.com and freewillastrology.com.
