Thanks for hearing the call

RE: “Make no mistake: This attack on our free press — your free press — is deliberate and calculated.” [Editorial, Aug. 15]:

Kudos to The Boston Globe for encouraging newspapers across the country to remind us all of the value of a free press, and to The Commons for hearing that call.

The New York Times editorial “A Free Press Needs You” concludes with the following: “If you haven’t already, please subscribe to your local papers. Praise them when you think they’ve done a good job and criticize them when you think they could do better. We’re all in this together.”

Today, I plan to subscribe.
