WITH BUDGET CUTS slashing away in every profession and industry, I saw the recent announcement that both the

Daily News

and the

Inquirer

will face more layoffs.

Newspapers are the criers that bring both the local scene and the world to our eyes and minds.

Reading a newspaper has been part of the American way of life for many years. You can help both the Daily News and the Inquirer by purchasing both daily. This not only helps in saving jobs, but will bring you even closer to what's going on locally and in the world around us.
