Has anyone else noticed that the New York Times seems to have killed, without a peep from anyone, the editorial, opinion and letters page in its regional weeklies, the Westchester, Long Island, and Connecticut sections (which aren't really individual sections any longer anyway)? Bummer. I know that the reaction I got from the two pieces I wrote -- one about Connecticut and the Clean Water Fund (here), the other about Broadwater (here) -- that it was widely-read and that people paid attention to it.
This is a blog about environmental issues in the New York area in general and Long Island Sound in particular. I'm the author of
"This Fine Piece of Water: An Environmental History of Long Island Sound," which came out in 2002. I wrote about the environment and other issues during almost two decades as a newspaper reporter.
Unless you tell me otherwise, I'll assume it's OK to publish what you send me.
