Matthew T. Hall is the opinion editor at the San Diego Union-Tribune newspaper. He recently received this letter from a long-time reader. The correspondent writes that, 25 years ago, they were homeless and in desperate need of a job. Back then, the best option to find job openings was in the classifieds published in the Sunday edition.
The newspaper lost money, but it was the paperboy who suffered for it, as the minor crime required extra unpaid labor. It’s very late, but the writer has a conscience that has never been freed from the guilt until now.
